Problem P. 4499. (January 2013)

P. 4499. The mass of an empty balloon is measured with a sensible electronic scale. The mass is 3.7 g. After blowing the balloon the reading on the scale was 4.5 g. The ,,perimeter'' of the balloon, whose shape could well be approximated as a sphere, was measured as 73 cm.

a) How much air was blown into the balloon?

b) What is the excess pressure inside the balloon, if the temperature in the room is 25 oC?

c) What is the drag force exerted on the balloon, when it descends uniformly?
