Helium Balloon Puzzle
Solve the Helium Balloon Puzzle
Solve the helium balloon puzzle.
A helium balloon is tied with a string to the floor of a car. The windows of the car are closed. When I start the car and accelerate, in which direction will the balloon go?
Backward? Forward? Or will it stay put?
- When the car accelerates and moves forward, due to inertia it will push the air inside the car backward.
- Since Helium is lighter than air, it pushes forward and hence the balloon will also move forward.
