Problem: A particular balloon can be stretched to a maximum surface area of 1257 cm 2. The balloon is filled with 3.0 L of helium gas at a pressure of 755 torr and a temperature of 298 K. The balloon is then allowed to rise in the atmosphere. If the atmospheric temperature is 273 K, at what pressure will the balloon burst? (Assume the balloon to be in the shape of a sphere.) 

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Buckley's class at WSU.
