HOT AIR BALLON
Nile Abenteuer takes you to this great experience. I will describe a hot air balloon simply as an aircraft that is lighter than air. This aircraft consists of an envelope filled with heated air. It is usually suspended beneath a sailboat or gondola. This is also known as a high latitude balloon in the shape of a capsule. In here, passengers are carried along with a source of heat. Just like it is with aircrafts, hot air balloons also do not fly beyond the atmosphere. The envelopes of hot air balloons do not have to be sealed at the bottom because the air at its bottom is at the same pressure as the air in the surrounding. With modern sport balloons today, you will find that the nylon fabric is generally used to make up the envelop while the inlet of the balloon is made from materials that are fire resistant, take nomex for example. Hot air balloons are made in all sorts of shapes and for commercial purposes as well.
How do hot air balloons work?
Buoyancy is what summarises this. We practically understand that warm air rises, so all one needs to make a hot air balloon is an envelope, burner and basket. The pressure inside the balloon remains the same while the density of the air within the balloon changes. Hot air balloons float because the burner heats up the air caught inside the balloon which makes it less dense than the air out side. The mechanism is simply the same as how a boat floats on water.
How is Uganda’s hot air balloon experience?
