    When I was in third grade I was in this science-y inventors club after school. My invention idea was a backpack that had helium pockets in it to make it lighter and cause less discomfort for students. Just like you though, I found that the amount of helium that would be needed to make a significant difference in weight could not be practically integrated into the design of a backpack.

    The helium may weigh the same, but it’s also less dense than the air that was in it before. So it may FEEL lighter.

  • gaijininja
    gaijininja 5 months ago

    There is also the issue that due to the small atomic mass of helium, it is more compressible than nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide, so would actually reduce the shock absorption and rebound of the shoes.

      @Joshua Carter you explained what I was thinking better than I could have.

    • Joshua Carter
      Joshua Carter 5 months ago +3

      I had the same question but I don't feel it has been answered by these other comments. It is true that the balloon and shoe would reach equilibrium but it is my opinion that there is a possibility that that shoe and it's thick bindings and thicker walls of the plastic see-through membrane could actually stand to hold a much higher air pressure than that balloon could possibly distribute therefore increasing the volume of helium that would be injected into the bottom of the shoe which could then have a very small effect of buoyancy in the gaseous liquid atmosphere we all live and walk around in on a daily basis.
      I think it is possible that if you punctured a hole and deflated the shoe of any gas it would still hold its shape as far as a person is concerned who is just looking at it like we are...
      But with a person actually wearing the shoe and putting that downward pressure on the sole of the footwear would show how under inflated shoe cavity would not be efficient for the proper fit function and especially the helium buoyancy effect that is claimed by these shoe manufacturers...
      Remember that video this guy put out recently that showed a balloon inside a glass bulb fully inflated with no air inside of it because it was surrounded by a different atmospheric pressure inside the glass bulb surrounding the balloon therefore even without any air whatsoever people in can still be inflated and hold its shape so wearing the shoe and putting the downward pressure would be crucial in determining how much air pressure should be applied when filling up the helium...

    • Cindy Cheng
      Cindy Cheng 5 months ago +8

      He sucked out the air from the shoes beforehand, so it's basically vacuum (low pressure); while the balloon is filled with helium (higher pressure). The pressure difference would make the air (helium) move from higher pressure to lower pressure to achieve equilibrium.

      Probably a difference in measurable by those scales. Look up the ‘ideal gas law’ and you’ll see how volume, pressure, temperature and ‘weight’ of a gas relate to each other. The volume of gas in the shoe really doesn’t seem to be very great at all.

    Creating a vacuum in the sole would probably be difficult (need for rigid and probably heavy material). And what's to be gained? This would probably not provide shock absorption. If it doesn't, then it's probably better not to put anything in the first place.

    You shouldve hooked it up to the tank directly instead of just equalizing it with a balloon

    What does the show weigh without anything in the air-pocket/bladder? Be cause the weight may not matter as much. Sometimes even when a balloon filled with helium goes to the floor after a few days it can be pushed to the ceiling where it kinda floats back down instead of fal lo ing straight.

    Life-saving tip: fill your Nikes with oxygen, then if you are ever drowning, you can breathe.

    We literally have a limited and decreasing supply of helium on Earth

    I think if you only have the air unit only.The weight
    between helium or air should be different.

    Air weighs about .075 pounds a cubic foot and the amount in that shoe, is so very very little that it won't make a real difference.

    Maybe I'm just weird, but for some reason I have always wanted to meet the person whose air bubble(s) *accidentally* popped on their Air Maxes.😂
    So many questions:
    I need to know what were you doing that caused them to pop.
    Where you wearing them when the bubble popped, or did you go to put them on one day and the bubbles were soggy?
    Did you get thrown off balance and fall when the air bubble popped?
    Did it make a sound when it popped?

    I love this myth.
    Even helium has mass! The only difference is the fact that helium has less of it than oxygen.

      This experiment was more about seeing if the buoyancy of this small amount of helium is big enough to be measured by a normal scale and not about the actual mass.
      A scale does not measure the mass directly but the force of something pressing against its surface. If it did the scale would show a similar value for a helium balloon and an empty balloon. But it won’t since the buoyancy makes the balloon float. So there is no force applied to the scale and therefore it will say the balloon ways 0g. The balloon itself without the helium will definitely have a value higher than 0 if the scale is accurate enough.

    Haven't they just banned sales of helium for sale in party stores? I know there are major universities that are about to lose MRI machines due to helium becoming difficult to get.
