Dear student,

The mass of the balloon, if its weight is W is [m=\dfrac{W}{g}]

The bouyant force [B] acting the body is same independent of the direction of movement of balloon. Hence while moving down,

W-B=mf

While moving up,

B-W'=mf

Hence the weight that must be removed=W-W'=2mf=2\dfrac{W}{g}f
