A recreational (open) hot air balloon (i.e., Pinside is approximately the same as Poutside) has a volume of 2227 m3 when fully inflated. The total weight of the balloon, basket, ballast and pilot is 1775.6 N (399 lb). How much less dense must the air in the balloon be than the surrounding atmosphere in order to keep the balloon floating level near the ground?
