If the volume of a balloon is V=416m^3 and the surrounding air is T=13.8 C. The temperature of the air in the balloon is 213 C. What is the max amount of mass, in addition to the mass of the hot air, the balloon can lift? Density of air is of air outside balloon is 1.22 Kg/m^3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know I need to use the Ideal Gas Law PV=nRT. Also the pressure exerted on the balloon by the air in the balloon is = to the pressure by the air outside of the balloon. I know to convert C to Kelvin. The only thing related to mass in this prob is density. I am just stuck on where to go w/ this. Any help would be appreciated :)
