A Weather balloon carries instruments that measure temperature, pressure, and humidity as it rises through the atmosphere. Suppose such a balloon has a volume of 1.2 m3 at sea level where the pressure is 1 atm and the temperature is 20oC. When the balloon is at an altitude of 11 km (36,000 ft) the pressure is down to 0.5 atm and the temperature is about negative 55oC (-55oC). What is the volume of the balloon then?
