A balloon of total mass 680 kg is descending with a constant acceleration of 0.4 m/s². Find the upthrust acting on the balloon. When the balloon is moving at 1.5 m/s, enough ballast is released for the balloon to fall a deceleration of 0.2 m/s². Calculate

a. How much ballast was released

b. The time for which the balloon continues to fall before it begins to rise.
