Lesson:

Finish any experimentation as needed.

Prepare a neat and professional formal report of your lab and results.

Your report must have:

  1. a formal heading

  2. title

  3. A “section” that includes each of the following

  • Your EXPERIMENTAL QUESTION

  • THE INDEPENDENT AND DEPENDENT VARIABLES.

  • WHAT ARE YOUR CONTROLS/CONTROL VARIABLES and how you controlled them

  • a description of your method that is detailed enough that another group could duplicate your experiment

  • a results section:

    • a data table of your measured results

  • Discussion of results - what do your results mean in terms of your research question?

  • a conclusion that answers your experimental question

Special notes:

  1. Use a heading for each section

  2. format this as a formal, professional report

  3. Consider graphing your results

  4. Perfect spelling, grammar and mechanics are expected.

Review the POWER POINT on How Hot air Balloons fly

  • Take notes on this in your science notebook

When done, see me to build a working model.

Fold four 20 x 30 sheets of tissue paper lengthwise. Mark cut lines as shown.    Make sure one cut line goes all the way to the fold and the other does not.

Here, it is complete.

Now start taping the top edges together (the ones that come to a point at the fold you made in step one).

It is best to tape the top edges on opposite sides of the balloon first.

The hardest part is taping the last two edges to seal up the top of the balloon. Its best to lay them flat on a table while putting on the tape.

Finally, tape the bottom of the balloon together just like you did on the top. The only difference is the bottom remains open like this - so we can force hot air inside!

Hot Air Balloon Physics: How Hot Air Balloons Fly

Forces on Hot air Balloons

  • lift

  • drag

  • thrust

  • weight

 

Buoyancy

  • Archimedes principle

  •   Force of Buoyancy - Density Difference x Volume Fluid x g

 

  For hot Air Balloons

  Fbuoyancy = (Dcoldair - Dhotair) x Volume

  Fbnet = (1.2—0.946)x2800 = 711 kg (1565 lb)

 

Building a Balloon

  •  3 dimensional patterns

  • taping

  • wire frame

  • basket
