wanabigaplane Posted June 15, 2008 Share Posted June 15, 2008 You’ve all heard of a man who tied lots of balloons to a chair and set off on an aerial adventure. I believe a priest set off about six months ago, and I haven’t heard of him being found. Question 1: Would the aircraft rise to a certain height and then become fairly stable at that height, or would it continue to drift upwards till some balloons burst? Question 2: If the pilot popped a few balloons to reduce altitude, would the aircraft become stable at a new lower altitude, or would it, once on a downward trajectory, accelerate downwards out of vertical control? :ah_oh: Consideration: As a balloon is inflated, it takes less pressure to inflate the balloon. Why is it so? Well, the material making up the balloon gets thinner. Jack. :):) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
