A light spring of constant k = 95.0 N/m is attached vertically to a table (figure (a)). A 2.70-g balloon is filled with helium (density = 0.179 kg/m3) to a volume of 4.00 m3 and is then connected to the spring, causing the spring to stretch as shown in figure (b). Determine the extension distance L when the balloon is in equilibrium. (The density of air is 1.29 kg/m3.)
