  1. When the balloon is inflated, where is air pressure greatest, inside it or outside it? (Hint: the air inside the balloon is exerting force on the inside walls of the balloon and the air molecules are trapped in a confined space.)

When a balloon is inflated, pressure is greater inside a balloon rather than outside of it. The reason for this is because the air molecules are crowded together within a confined space. Outside of a balloon, the molecules can spread further apart and thus there is less pressure built up.
