Foil helium balloons

Foil helium balloons are able to float in the air, this is possible because the air that is put in to the foil balloons is lighter then the air outside. This is due to one gas being lighter than the other in enables the balloons with the light gas in to float up on top of it. Helium balloons floating in the air can be thought of in the same ways as plastic bottles full of air in a pool of water, they float on top as the air in the bottle is lighter than the water that it is on, this even that mean if you put the bottle under the water it will still work its way to the top and float. However helium balloons do not float as strongly as the air filled bottles on the water this is because the density between the helium and the air outside is not so great. A buddle of helium balloons will normally weigh around 0.18g, a buddle of air weighs will be approximately 1.25, this shows that there is not a significant difference between the two, however there is another difference for the helium balloon to float. Foil balloons are often chosen over latex balloons as they are very detail and can be bright bold colours that will not distort when the balloons are inflated.
