Sample Learning Goals


For Teachers Aerostatic Balloon

This simulation demonstrates Archimedes' Principle with a hot air balloon. The rising and falling of the hot air balloon is affected by the ambient temperature T0, the initial air pressure P0, and the mass of the hot air balloon m.

The left graph of the simulation shows the actual hot air balloon. The right graph plots the graph of pressure (blue) and height (green) against time.

Turning on the burner causes the hot air balloon to rise, turning the burner off causes it to descend.
