To calculate the volume of helium required for neutral buoyancy based on the mass of components and blimp.
- Temperature is constant.
- The gas is purely helium
- The density of surrounding air is constant
- Atmospheric pressure is constant
Using the equation -
For the blimp to float -
MassBlimp = MassComponents + MassMylar
On simplification, we get -
I hope the equation can help the team members to determine the approximate dimensions of the blimp.
Air Swimmers Blimp
For the past few weeks, I have been playing around with the air swimmers blimp to gather some intuition.
