Is Hell Endothermic or Exothermic?

1. ## Is Hell Endothermic or Exothermic?

Someone sent this to me today... thought Id share

HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington Chemistry mid-term.

The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now
have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some
variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate
at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic andhas already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

3. Hehe, remember this for all the right reasons

4. A hurban legend well known all around the world, but always funny to read!

5. lol! thats awesome!! I should sent that to my mom she would get a kick out of it.

6. Wow, another variant?

So many different versions floating around...

7. HAHA, i'm printing this out

8. lmao, fantastic

9. Now THATS a fuckin' good read

10. Loved this joke back when I first heard it. Loving it even more now with a bigger brain and an appreciation of comedy.

11. Good laugh, the only time I laughed about such a class-test joke was the legend about the test questioning "What is bravery?" and the A-student who gave it back after a minute stating "This is bravery!".

14. Heh, I read this one some time ago at Bash.org. It is just wonderful

15. Your right about everything except hell not accepting any more souls. Everyone knows the quote in the bible "when theres no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth". i havent seen any walking dead people yet so hell must still be accepting souls.

16. I'd love to see where that's written in the bible. In those exact words.

17. sweet, that was seriously a good read..

The Bible, Dawn of the Dead, same difference.

20. Dawn of the Dead is my bible.

21. Hell must be filling up, because this post just came back from the dead!!
