keep in mind this problem is on page 8 of my text (yes I'm already confused by the problem) and the ideal gas law was just introduced.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

problem: Estimate the average temperature of the air inside a hot air balloon. Assume that the total mass of the unfilled balloon and payload is 500kg. What is the mass of the air inside the balloon?

That's all that's given. Thanks in advance.
