|How to Inflate a
Balloon by Mouth
There are two ways to blow up a balloon. You could use a pump or your
lungs. I highly suggest you use a pump. Blowing up a balloon by mouth
is very difficult.
Why are the thin balloons harder to blow up then the round balloons?
Round balloons have an evenly displaced diameter. This means that as
the balloon inflates its volume gets greater, thus the pressure is the
same through out the balloon. Thin balloons, like pencils, have a much
smaller diameter and length to it. This means that the volume is much
less than a round balloon while its surface area is about the same.
The result is that the pressure of a thin balloon is incredibly
So how do you over come its massive pressure? Is there a trick? The
trick to inflating a balloon by mouth is blow really hard. Simple
enough? Not really. Itís easier said then done.
But donít give up hope, there are exercises you can do to help you
inflate pencil balloons.
Breath in as deep as you can fast as you can and hold it for a few
seconds. Exhale much as you can as fast as you can as hold it for a
few seconds. Do this repeated for a few minutes or until you get light
headed or dizzy. If you get dizzy or light headed your doing it right.
Try this a few times a day for a few weeks. If you can go longer and
longer before you get light headed then your progressing nicely.
Another method is to start out blowing up larger balloons and work
your way down. Try blowing up a 350Q and once you can blow it up
easily move down to a 260Q. Who know you may also be able to work down
to a 160Q. Kind of a twelve step program for balloons.
