What are Helium Balloons?
Helium balloons are nothing but are same tiny balloons that use helium as their primary gas to keep them aloft. These are the same small party-sized balloons (also called tethered balloons) that people tie to strings to have float as ornamentation.
How does the helium balloon work?
Helium balloons works by the law of buoyancy. These tiny helium balloon displaces an amount of air same like an empty bottle displaces an amount of water.
One can see Helium balloons floating in the air, this is because the helium gas inside of them is very lighter than the air outside and everyone knows that one gas is lighter than another gas, it tends to float up on top of it. It is same like the plastic bottle full of air in a pool of water. Because the air in the bottle is lighter than the water itself, that is why, it floats up to the top, even if you keep it deep underwater. The speed at which the bottle of air floats at the top of the water can be easily determined by the difference in their densities, which is really pretty extreme: a liter of water weighs around whereas a liter of air weighs 1g.
