Newton's Third Law: To make a balloon in a jet balloon lab make a return trip

I take principles of Physics and for the last two days I have been trying to do a lab where I have to develop a design with 6 yards of strings conected to two poles and pulled taught, as many balloons as necessary, straws, tape, and paper clips. The set up of the lab is a string stretched taught across the room in the first lab the balloon is attached to a straw with tape and the string is threaded through the straw. The balloon is inflated but not tied. When the balloon and the string are ready, the neck of the balloon is released and the balloon shoots across from pole A to pole B. That part of the experiment has already been determined.

The experiment is extended in that the next step is to make the balloon to go from point A to pole B and back to pole A. I have been trying to determine how to design the balloon to coincide with Newton's Third Law. The rules state that you may not touch the balloon once it leaves pole A; you may attach as many balloons as necessary: the materials include string, paper clips, balloons, straws, and tape.

Here are 3 ideas you might find interesting:

1. Attach a second inflated balloon that will be facing the opposite direction. When the two balloons reach pole B, a sharp object like a paper ...

Solution Summary

the solution presents three ideas for methods to solve the problem, including diagrams.

A balloon is descending with a constant acceleration "a" less than 'g' weight of the balloon with the basket and the contents is W. What weight m of the basket should be released so that the balloon will begin to accelerate upwards with constant acceleration 'a' ? Neglect air resistance.

A helium-filled balloon is being transported in a car. As the car accelerates away from a stop light, in which direction does the balloon move relative to the car?
Thank you!

Systematic reasoning - Patterns of deductive thinking
Decide whether the following hypothetical arguments are valid or invalid:
1. If the balloon burst, then it lost air.
The balloon did not burst.
Therefore, the balloon did not lose air.
2. If the balloon burst, then it lost air.
The balloon did not lose air.

Air is being pumped into a spherical balloon so that the radius is increasing at the rate of dr/dt = 3 inches per second. What is the rate of change of the volume of the balloon in cubic inches per second, when r = 8 inches? Hint: V = 4/3(pi)r^3

1. A weather balloon is rising vertically at a constant rate of 4 ft/s directly above a straight and level road. When the balloon is 75 ft above the road, a car moving at 55 ft/s passes directly under the balloon. Based on this information find:
a. the rate the distance between the balloon and the car is changing 3 sec after t

Please help with the following problem. Provide step by step calculations.
A round balloon had a radius of 0.30 m & contains nitrogen (N2) at 30 degrees Celsius and one atmosphere total pressure. What is the volume of the nitrogen in the balloon? How many moles of nitrogen are in the balloon? What is the mass of the nitrogen

A spherical balloon of radius 10.0 m has a mass of 600 kg when empty. If the balloon is filled with 1.0 atmospheres of helium gas, what is the mass of the largest cargo it could carry near the earth's surface to get off the ground:
