Balloons Revisited
Jeskova, Z.; Featonby, D.; Fekova, V.
Physics Education, v47 n4 p392-398 Jul 2012
Whilst everyone is familiar with the process of blowing up a balloon, few of us have gone further to quantify the actual pressures involved at different stages in the inflation process. This paper seeks to describe experiments to fill some of those gaps and examine some of the apparently anomalous behaviour of connected balloons. (Contains 12 figures.)
