    A helium filled balloon is tied to a 2.0 meter long, 0.050-kg string. The balloon is spherical with a radius of 0.40 m. When released, it lifts a length (h) of the string and then remains in equilibrium as in the figure. Now determine the value of (h). When deflated, the balloon has a mass of 0.25 kg.
