The density of air is 1.29 kg per cubic meter.

The density of helium is 0.18 kg per cubic meter.

The density of hydrogen is 0.06 kg per cubic meter.

When inflated, a balloon has a volume of gas of 2.0 X 10^6 cubic meters.

When empty, the balloon has a mass of 200,000 kg.

HOW DO I FIND THE FORCE NECESSARY TO HOLD THE BALLOON DOWN IF IT WERE FILLED WITH HYDROGEN?

I have no idea what the equation would be. HELP!!!!

3. The attempt at a solution

Uhhhh....
