If I have a steel canister of helium and a balloon attached to the valve. If the helium is in the canister, the assembly stays on the ground. If I let the gas into balloon it floats. Why?
There is no change to the amount of energy, the gas is de-pressurised from the canister to the balloon and the density inside the balloon changes, but the overall weight stays the same.q I should know, I just can’t figure out why exactly.
