Hot Air Balloon Rides
Your Basic Question About Hot Air Balloons
Here is a basic question, asked all the time about hot air balloon rides.
People often wonder how much air volume goes into a hot air balloon?
The simple answer is, it depends on how big the balloon is, passengers on board and how large the gondola is where the people stand.
To give a more technical answer we must calculate the mass being lifted first.
The most important thing you have to determine is if the density of the mass, (weight) that balloon has to lift.
Then you must determine a few other factors, which include the atmosphere, (which can very by temperature – altitude – humidity and atmospheric pressure).
Then, calculate the volume of the atmosphere that weighs the same as the combined mass being lifted (the weight).
Passengers that will travel in a hot air balloon will have experts by their sides. The balloon operators know as they lift the balloon the air and the atmospheric pressure decreases as they rise and the balloon will keep airborne.
To make the balloon rise, you must have a way to make the balloon blow up and heat the air inside the balloon. This is done with a simple technique. First the balloon operators set up large fans to make the balloons blow up and to make the balloon rise, they have large burners.
These burners can produce up to 100,000 BTU’s (British Thermal Unit) of heat each. As a point of reference, one BTU is equivalent to one match being lit.
