A gas balloon is a balloon that rises and floats in the air because it is filled with a gas lighter than air (such as helium or hydrogen). When not in flight, it is tethered to prevent it from flying away and is sealed at the bottom to prevent the escape of gas.

Where do all the balloons go? So, latex helium balloons_don't go on space, heaven, to the moon or to the sun. They reach a point where the atmospheric pressure is less than the pressure inside the balloon itself. Finally, they burst as a result of an increase in pressure inside the balloon.

How does a balloon fly? Hot air balloons fly when the air inside the hot air balloon is less dense than the air surrounding it. Hot air is less dense than cool air; the heated air causes the balloon to rise simply because it is lighter than an equal volume of cold air. A hot air balloon uses a burner to heat up the air inside theballoon.

How much does it cost to put helium in balloons? Latex balloons filled with helium typically cost between 50 cents and $1 at party stores. Filled Mylar or foil balloons typically cost $1 to $4 for normal-size balloons, 18-inches in diameter andsmaller, or $7 to $15 for oversized or jumbo balloons, which may be 20- to 50-inches in their longest measurement.
