Balloon FAQs:

Q: Is a balloon a flexible bag that can be inflated with a gas?

A: Yes, such as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, oxygen, or air.

Q: Is a balloon inflated to clear or compress arterial plaque?

A: Yes, and to stretch the walls of the vessel, thus preventing myocardial infarction.

Q: Are balloons thin?

A: Yes, and small rubber balloons filled with a liquid, usually water, instead of a gas, and intended to be easily broken.

Q: Is a balloon perfectly safe to release into the environment as it is made from a natural substance and will biodegrade over time?

A: Yes.

Q: Are balloons often deliberately released?

A: Yes, and creating a so-called balloon rocket.

Q: Are balloons its lightweight?

A: Yes, and increasing buoyancy and its ability to keep the helium gas from escaping for several weeks.

Q: Is a balloon inversely proportional to the diameter of the balloon?

A: Yes, and these tiny tubular balloons are extremely hard to inflate initially.

Q: Are balloons left and they float higher?

A: Yes, as atmospheric pressure decreases, the air inside it exerts more pressure than outside it so the balloon pops from tension.

Q: Are balloons thin?

A: Yes, and large balloons filled with air that is heated by the sun in order to decrease its density to obtain lift.

Q: Are balloons mostly made of a natural latex tapped from rubber trees?

A: Yes, and can be filled with air, helium, water, or any other suitable liquid or gas.

Q: Are balloons suspended from a fixed height?

A: Yes.

Q: Were balloons made of dried animal bladders?

A: Yes, such as the pig bladder.

Q: Are balloons inserted into blocked or partially blocked blood vessels near the heart?

A: Yes.

Q: Are balloons made from materials such as rubber?

A: Yes, and latex, polychloroprene, or a nylon fabric, and can come in many colors.

Q: Is a balloon filled with air?

A: Yes, and the balloon is being stretched.

Q: Was a balloon invented by Michael Faraday in 1824?

A: Yes, and during experiments with various gases.

Q: Are balloons in balloon drops?

A: Yes.

Q: Are balloons used for decorative purposes or entertaining purposes?

A: Yes, while others are used for practical purposes such as meteorology, medical treatment, military defense, or transportation.

Q: Are balloons manipulated to create shapes and figures for parties and events?

A: Yes, and typically along with entertainment.

Q: Are balloons used for decorating birthday parties?

A: Yes, and weddings, corporate functions, school events, and for other festive gatherings.

Q: Is a balloon opened?

A: Yes, and the gas within the balloon is expelled out, and due to Newton's third law of motion, the balloon is propelled forward.

Q: Are balloons used for publicity at major events?

A: Yes.

Q: Are balloons filled with helium so that they float?

A: Yes, and they typically retain their buoyancy for only a day or so, sometimes longer.
