HELIUM AND ARGON FILLED BALLOONS<br />
(Variations Available)<br />
The Two Balloons Are Filled To The Same Volume<br />
After 14.5 hours the helium filled balloon is smaller than the Argon filled balloon. Helium effuses out of the balloon faster than Argon.  Light atoms or molecules effuse through the pores of the balloons faster than heavy atoms or molecules.
