How Do Hot Air Balloons Work

Have you ever seen a hot air balloon in the sky? and you must wonder how a such a big thing can go so high in the air

Did you know air actually weighs something because of the molecules in the air.Hot air weighs less then cold air because the molecules are faster and further apart so the balloon rises higher. The procaine in the burner burns to go higher and there’s a hatch to let hot air out to go lower. There are weights on the basket to keep the balloon from floating away.

Hot air ballooning is lots of fun if you know how to work it
