Question

We consider a hot-air balloon of mass 262 kg (basket and envelope). The spherical envelope of the balloon has a diameter of 17 m when fully inflated. To what temperature (in °C) must the enclosed air be heated for the balloon to carry five standard men? Assume the surrounding air is at 20°C and is treated as an ideal gas. Use 29 g/mol for the molar mass of air. (Assume the mass of each standard man is 70 kg.)

Answer #1

The envelope and basket of a hot-air balloon have a combined
weight of 2.36 kN, and the envelope has a capacity (volume) of 2.29
x 103 m3. When it is fully inflated, what
should be the temperature of the enclosed air to give the balloon a
lifting capacity (force) of 2.64 kN (in addition to the
balloon's weight)? Assume that the surrounding air, at 20.0°C, has
a weight per unit volume of 11.9 N/m3 and a molecular
mass of 0.0280...

1) A hot air balloon consists of a very large bag filled with
heated air at 120.0 °C produced from a propane burner. It has a
basket hanging under it in which several people can ride. The
average hot air balloon has a volume of 2.80 × 103 m3 when fully
inflated.
a) Determine the work (in kJ) needed to inflate the balloon under
an external air pressure of 1.00 atm.
b) The specific heat of the air found in...

Challenge problem. (extra credit) Consider a hot-air balloon.
The deflated balloon, gondola, and two passengers have a combined
mass of 315 kg. When inflated, the balloon contains 912 m3 of hot
air. Find the temperature (?C) of the hot air required to lift the
balloon off the ground. The air outside the balloon has a
temperature of 20.2?C and a pressure of 0.916 × 10^5 Pa. The
pressure of the hot air inside the balloon is the same as the...

A spherical balloon is made from a material whose mass is 2.60
kg. The thickness of the material is negligible compared to the
1.30 m radius of the balloon. The balloon is filled with helium
(He) at a temperature of 280 K and just floats in air, neither
rising nor falling. The density of the surrounding air is 1.19
kg/m³ and the molar mass of helium is 4.0026×10-3 kg/mol. Find the
absolute pressure of the helium gas.

A helium balloon ride lifts up passengers in a basket. Assume
the density of air is 1.28 kg/m3 and the density of
helium in the balloon is 0.18 kg/m3. The radius of the
balloon (when filled) is R = 5 m. The total mass of the empty
balloon and basket is mb = 124 kg and the total volume
is Vb = 0.06 m3. Assume the average person
that gets into the balloon has a mass mp = 70 kg...

2. A spherical balloon is made from a material whose mass is
3.10 kg. The thickness of the material is negligible compared to
the 1.55 m radius of the balloon. The balloon is filled with helium
(He) at a temperature of 315 K and just floats in air, neither
rising nor falling. The density of the surrounding air is 1.19
kg/m³ and the molar mass of helium is 4.0026×10-3 kg/mol. Find the
absolute pressure of the helium gas.

A helium balloon ride lifts up passengers in a basket. Assume
the density of air is 1.28 kg/m3 and the density of
helium in the balloon is 0.18 kg/m3. The radius of the
balloon (when filled) is R = 5 m. The total mass of the empty
balloon and basket is mb = 123 kg and the total volume
is Vb = 0.058 m3. Assume the average person
that gets into the balloon has a mass mp = 70 kg...

A helium balloon ride lifts up passengers in a basket. Assume
the density of air is 1.28 kg/m3 and the density of helium in the
balloon is 0.18 kg/m3. The radius of the balloon (when filled) is R
= 4.6 m. The total mass of the empty balloon and basket is mb = 126
kg and the total volume is Vb = 0.056 m3. Assume the average person
that gets into the balloon has a mass mp = 72 kg...

A hot air balloon has a mass of 250 kg and carries two
passengers whose average weight is 84 Kg. The balloon, which has a
diameter of 12 m, rises through atmospheric air which is at 20oC.
Find the total buoyant force on the balloon. Atmospheric pressure
is 100 kPa with gas constant = 8.13 kJ/kmol.K and molar mass of the
air is 28.97 g/mol

A spherical balloon of radius 2.09 m is made from a material of
mass 3.07 kg. A certain amount of helium gas, at
temperature 32.5o C, is put in the balloon, it just
floats on the air, neither rising nor falling.
Assume:
- the thickness of the balloon is negligible compared to the
radius of the balloon, and can be ignored.
- the balloon material displaces a negligible amount of air, and
therefore creates no negligible buoyancy.
If the density of...
