Question: Plans are being made to bring back the zeppelin a

Plans are being made to bring back the zeppelin, a lighter-than-air airship like the Goodyear blimp that carries passengers and cargo, but is filled with helium, not flammable hydrogen as was used in the ill-fated Hindenburg. One design calls for the ship to be 110 m long and to have a total mass (without helium) of 30.0 metric tons. Assuming the ship’s “envelope” to be cylindrical, what would its diameter have to be so as to lift the total weight of the ship and the helium?
