If you inhale helium do you get sick?
There aren't any records that show that inhaling helium gets you sick.
You don't drink helium, you inhale it. When you then attempt to speak, since the density of helium is less than that of air, you voice has a higher timbre. Note: Helium does not contain oxygen. If you breathe helium alone, you will tend to pass out. If you don't get oxygen for a sustained period of time, you will die.
When you inhale hexaflouride gas you voice goes really low because hexaflouride gas is 6x denser than the air we breath... and i don't think you get a headache but when you breathe in helium, you get a headache. From a scale from1 to 10 of a headache from helium, it would possibly be a 5 which can hurt a lot. ^_^
Helium is not the only gas that will make a voice change, but in most cases you can't inhale other gases without doing substantial harm to yourself. Hydrogen would have approximately the same effect as Helium, but it's so reactive that it would not be safe to inhale; Nitrogen and Oxygen are the gases you normally breath, so would create a normal sound. Neon is very near to those in atomic weight. Fluorine gas is…
Helium is a chemical if you breath that chemical through a balloon or anything that involves helium will shut your body off.Helium can be a very dangerous chemical Helium is an inert gas, and despite the fact that some inhale it to change their voice temporally, I don't suggest inhaling. You need gas exchange to live.
One thing would be good ol' helium! Inhaling helium makes your voice sound funny. However, there aren't many other things legal or safe to inhale, so DON'T! It is a violation of Federal law to use any chemical or paint in any way inconsistent with its labelling. (not to mention it could do some serious damage to your lungs and body)
What happens if you inhale oxygen then enter a room filled with helium and utter a sentence exhaling co2 into the helium?
Nothing remotely exciting. The pitch of your voice will be normal because there is no helium passing your vocal cords. CO2 is exhaled in every breath and will be mixed with the helium as it would be in other atmospheres. Only if you remain in the room and continue to breath the helium will there be any ill effects. Helium isn't poisonous but the lack of oxygen would cause asphyxiation and eventually death.
- It's the lightest noble gas. - It's the second most abundant element in the universe. - Liquid helium is a superconductor. - The nucleus of a helium atom is equivalent to an alpha particle. - Its extreme stability is the reason why its fusion from hydrogen releases so much energy. - It makes you talk funny when you inhale it.
Helium is not very dense especially because it is a gas, hence when you inhale helium it makes your voice high pitched because the low density the sound waves are travelling through lets the sound waves go faster, it is like fast forwarding a video or a sound the pitch get higher and higher the faster you go.
