If you blow up and properly tie a balloon the elascity of the balloon probably compresses the air a bit, yes, due to the force of wanting to return to a smaller, pre-inflated size. Usually the volume of air in the ballon stays about constant for a week or two, three, then tge balloon gets slowly smaller. Why? The molecules must be taking up the same volume, yes? So, are they escaping? If so, why only after two weeks? Does tge balloon degrade?

I wonder this often, but I remember very little of physics or how to apply it here.

I think when you're blowing up the balloon the size increases quickly first of all and then slows down but the pressure increases more.

So, do you mean it is losing air from the start but the size is maintained in the first week or two as it equates to a loss of pressure, and it’s only when this pressure is lowered to equal, I guess, the outside air pressure that you see the actual difference in size?

Yes, that seems to make sense!

Isn't that net weight on the packet though?

Yeah, they should be 25g but they're not. They're more than that which therefore makes them monsters!

But you're weighing them with the packet, which is the gross weight.

I imagine the packet doesn’t weigh 32g though

Possibly not, but how do we know without him emptying the contents first, then weighing the packet, then putting the crisps back in again? For science!

The lowest of those figures, in packet, is 30g, the highest 57g, so even without the quibbling over the weight of the bag there's a disparity of 27g.

Anyway, enjoy your crisp bonanaza.

It's because it's Aldi, so those crisps will be made from horses, which are heavier than potatoes.

1. Pick up the bag.
2. Weigh yourself, make a note of the reading and stay on the scales until after point 5 below.
3. Open the bag and eat the crisps.
4. Put the bag down (not on the scales, obv.).
5. Note the new reading on the scales.
6. Deduct the reading at point 5 from the reading at point 2 to calculate the weight of the bag.

NB if your scales aren't accurate enough for so small a measure, buy a bargain box of crisps and eat them all, then do the same calculation after discarding the bags and divide the result by the number of bags in the box, BUT DON'T PUT THE BOX DOWN UNTIL AFTER THE FINAL CALCULATION.

I've had horsemeat jerky, which I suppose is similar to horse crisps.

It was delicious.

I bought this chicken for £13 but didn't read the description so it was VERY SMALL and MrsA wagered it on an Easter Egg Hunt with BIG CHILD vs and eight year old and Big Child is of questionable understanding when it comes to games so THE CHICKEN WAS LOST. I received a LARGE HEN in the post today.

Is gambling on Easter egg hunts with ceramic poultry as currency normal up there in the wilds?
