Helium balloon "centrifugal" force 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Assume that you are driving down a straight road at a constant speed. A helium-filled balloon is tied to a string that is pinned to the front seat. Which way will the balloon swing when you apply the brakes? Explain why. 2. Relevant equations Not a calculation. 3. The attempt at a solution Normally the object would try to sustain its motion and would swing foward. However, the helium balloon must change this scenario? Thanks.
