An ideal gas fills a balloon that has a spherical shape. The
coordinate system chosen for the problem is a Cartesian system located at the
center of the sphere with x pointing east, y pointing north, and z pointing
vertically upward. The temperature of the gas is 305 K, and the molar volume is
12.5 l/mol. What are the forces (your answers should be vectors) on the 1.0 cm2
areas of balloon surface located as follows:

(a) At the equator of the balloon and centered where the
balloon intersects the x-axis?

(b) At the equator of the balloon and centered where the
balloon intersects the
