I came across a funny story today, supposedly a university professor in thermodynamics gave his class only one question for their final exam. And it was as follows, is hell exotermic (gives off heat) or endotermic (absorbs heat), prove your theory.
The majority of his students referred to Boyles law, where gas cools when it expands and heats up when it is compressed, but one of his students answered as follows.
– the students paper.
Firstly you need to know how hells mass changes over time, you need to find out how many souls arrives in hell and how many departs, i make the assumption that if you first arrive in hell you never get out. Therefor no one leaves hell.
When it comes to the question of how many souls that arrives in hell, we have to take a closer look at the different religions of the world. Some religions claim that if you don’t follow their religion you go straight to hell, since there are multiple religions that make this claim, and since people usually only follow one religion at any given time, it is logical to assume that everybody will end up in hell.
With todays number of births and deaths the number of people in hell increases dramatically every day.
Secondly you need to calculate the change in hells volume, Boyles law predicts that for the temperature and the pressure of hell to be maintained at a steady level its volume will need to be increased at the same speed as new arrivals.
This in the end then leaves you with only to possibilities
1. if hell expands with a slower speed than new arrivals the pressure and temperature will increase until all hell breaks loose
2. on the other hand if hell expands faster than new souls arrive the temperature and pressure will decrease until hell freezes over
Which of these two possibilities is the correct one? If we bring into the equation the fundamental principle that has was established by Theresa Banyan during my first year in college where she said (hell will freeze over before I will go to bed with you) and the fact that I still haven’t made any progress with her, we can exclude possibility number 2 and therefor hell is exothermic.
