A tank having a volume of .1 m^3 contains helium gas at 150 atm. How many balloons can the tank blow up if each filled balloon is a sphere .3 m in diameter at an absolute pressure of 1.2 atm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is what I have so far: Assuming no gas gas escapes to the atmosphere during transfer, n is constant. R is constant by definition. Lastly the final volume must be a multiple of (4/3)(pi)(.3/2)^3. But this leaves me with three variables -the volume factor, and the initial and final temperatures...please help... thanks
