Solution: A certain flexible weather balloon contains helium gas at a volume of 855 L. Initially, the balloon is at sea level where the temperature is 25°C and the barometric pressure is 730 torr. The balloon then rises to an altitude of 6000 ft, where the pressure is 605 torr and the temperature is 15°C. What is the change in volume of the balloon as it ascends from sea level to 6000 ft?
