Making a weather balloon with a Raspberry Pi

Producing an accurate model

Factor that must be accounted for

  • Mass of objects to lift
  • Volume of helium to use
    • Density of helium
    • Pressure of helium
    • Temperature (Affects pressure)
  • Air
    • Pressure
    • Density
    • Temperature
NOTE to Andrew:
You don't need to include the volume of the Pi rig when calculating the bouyancy force as only the volume of the balloon is relevant
