Why does a balloon expand until the pressure of the gas inside balloon balances the pressure of the gas outside?
That's because the balloon is quite flexible. If there is a pressure difference, it will expand (or contract) as a reaction to that pressure difference. ...

What does the female urinary system look like?
OK, now I'm no doctor so bear with me. OK, so basically imagine two straws with a balloon on each end. One balloon on the not flexible ends, and one on both flexible ends. Well here you go, it may not be scientist guaranteed, but you have your answer. ...
Does temperature affect the maximum size of a balloon?
The maximum size of a balloon would be determined by how much pressure the material which the balloon is made of can take before it ruptures. Keep in mind that materials that balloons are made from tend to become somewhat weaker as they get warmer but also become less flexible when they get colder. There will be a point somewhere between "cold" and "hot" where the balloon material will reach maximum elasticity before becoming to weak to retain integrity when stretched to...

Does temperature affect the maximum size that you can inflate a balloon?
Depends on the quality of the balloon. Inexpensive party balloons generally degrade with heat over time. Inexpensive balloons may also be more flexible up to a certain point if they are warmed. Balloons are porous and lose gas slowly through the gaps between the molecules of latex/plastic. If you inflate a balloon and then put it in the freezer it will shrink due to the gas particles occupying less volume at colder temperatures but the same pressure. Temperature affects the size that the...
How can you use a balloon with a negative charge to find out whether the charge on another balloon is positive or negative?
You can tell if the negative balloon attracts or repels the other balloon. If it attracts the balloon then it is a positive balloon. If it repels the balloon then it is a negative balloon. ...
Is a balloon payment calculator really a balloon?
A balloon payment calculator is not actually in the shape of a balloon. It is used to calculate a balloon payment; it is called a balloon payment because of its size. ...
Why a charged balloon repels another charged balloon while a charged balloon attracts an uncharged balloon?
Like charges repel each other. As to the uncharged balloon, the charged balloon will induce a separation of charges in the uncharged balloon. ...
If empty barrel weighs 10 pounds what can you put in the barrel so that it weighs less?
You could put a flexible bladder (balloon) filled with helium in it. The classic answer to this old question is: Fill it full of holes. ...
Asked in Physics
Why doesn't an inflated balloon shrink when heated?
Because as the balloon is heated, the gases on the inside of the balloon begin to expand and press out on the walls of balloon. If a balloon is refridgerated, the opposite is true: the gases on the inside of the balloon will begin to contract, causing the balloon to shrink. ...
