Homework Statement:
We have to make a hot air balloon that can rise up to 5km and bring up 4 people. In total, the balloon weight is 750 kilogrammes. We cannot exceed the temperature of the air inside by 100 degrees C. We have to find how the temperature of air must change in order for the balloon to maintain a constant rising speed.
Relevant Equations:
Fl = V (ρc - ρh) ag
Volume of hot air ballon
V=((4/3 pi R^3)/2) + (1/3 pi h (R^2 + r^2 + Rh) = 2956.24 m3

Balloon:
R=9m
h=15m
r=1m

m = 750 kg
H = 5000m
T = 373 K
p1 = 101300 Pa
p2 = 50650 Pa
M(air) = 0.029 kg/mol
F = mg - 7350 N

You need to show more of an attempt at working this out. Also, "We cannot exceed the temperature of the air inside by 100 degrees C" is an ambiguous statement. Please clarify.
