A spherically shaped balloon has a radius of 13 m, and is filled with helium. How much extra mass can a cargo lift, assuming that the skin and the cargo of the balloon have a mass of 1000 kg? Neglect the buoyant force on the cargo volume itself.(The density of air is 1.29 kg/m3 and the density of helium is 0.179 kg/m3)
