I performed a project with balloons and water. I placed 1 gallon of room 
temperature water in a container and then placed a balloon filled with 
cold water and a balloon filled with warm water inthe container.  The cold 
water balloon sunk and the warm water balloon floated.  I wanted to know 
what sources of error there might be and if I had put the room temp. water 
in the ballons and filled the container with warm and cold water would my 
results have been the same?
