Homework Help: physics

Posted by angela on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 10:30am.

a hot air balloon is hovering at an altitude of 6000 meters. The pilot decides that it is time to descend and turns off the balloon's burners.Once the balloon reaches the ground, the gas inside the balloon occupies 980 m cubed and is at atmospheric pressure. If the pressure of the gas inside of the balloon was 75,000 Pascals at its highest altitude, what was the volume of the gas at that time. i did 75,000*980/6000 and got 12250 msqr/pa. can you tell me if that is right or am i missing something.
