Density-The Science Behind Hot Air Balloons

Here is a great video on YouTube that explains the concept of density through the use of a hot air balloon.  Hot Air Balloons hold a special place in my heart as they are a big part of my hometown, Binghamton, NY.  Every summer they have a Hot Air Balloon Rally & Spiedie Festival and one year I got to go up in one…that is something that is a huge item off of my bucket list!

Enjoy the video and leave a comment for credit about the connection between hot air balloons and density.  Use evidence from the video!
