Imagine a baby alien playing with a spherical balloon the size of the Earth in the outer solar system. Helium gas inside the balloon has a uniform temperature of 50.0 K due to radiation from the Sun. The uniform pressure of the helium is equal to normal atmospheric pressure on Earth. (a) Find the mass of the gas in the balloon. (b) The baby blows an additional mass of 8.00 X 1020 kg of helium into the balloon. At the same time, she wanders closer to the Sun and the pressure in the balloon doubles. Find the new temperature inside the balloon, whose volume remains constant.
