How much compressed air to fill 400 5" balloons?

I need to fill 400 5" balloons with air. How much compressed air will it take? I have a canister with nearly 2000 pressure. Is that enough?

5" balloon
by: Carolyn

PSI has nothing to do with "gas capacity" 5" latex balloons take .06 cubic feet of air, nitro, or helium. Don't use helium in 5" latex balloons, but I'm sure you know that.

Filling balloons with air
by: Margit

You mentioned a pressure of 2000 - do you know in which units the pressure is measured in your canister? Most common ones are pascal (pa), bar and atmosphere (atm).

I normally don't use a canister to fill balloons with air, but an electrical balloon inflator.

Calculating the volume of your 5" balloons might help you in finding out if the compressed air you have in your canister is sufficient.
