The mass of a hot-air balloon and its occupants is 289 kg (excluding the hot air inside the balloon). The air outside the balloon has a pressure of 1.01 x 105 Pa and a density of 1.29 kg/m3. To lift off, the air inside the balloon is heated. The volume of the heated balloon is 890 m3. The pressure of the heated air remains the same as that of the outside air. To what temperature in Kelvin must the air be heated so that the balloon just lifts off? The molecular mass of air is 29 u.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
