Buoyancy is based on the idea that less dense objects will float in a more dense fluid.
Hot air balloons use propane tanks to heat the air in the envelope, or fabric part, of the balloon.
Hang two paper bags upside down and have a light source placed beneath one bag.
How could you control the balloon so that it did not float all the way to the ceiling?
