Homework Help: physics

Posted by Donna on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at 5:54pm.

Several people are riding in a hot-air balloon. The combined mass of the people and balloon is 284 kg. The balloon is motionless in the air, because the downward-acting weight of the people and balloon is balanced by an upward-acting 'buoyant' force. If the buoyant force remains constant, how much mass should be dropped overboard so the balloon acquires an upward acceleration of 0.28 m/s2?
