Applied Thermodynamics : Is Hell Exothermic Or Endothermic?

Disclaimer: I was never even mediocre in Thermodynamics that i would even think of this concept, i got that from NET a few years ago, the source i don't remember, but hat's off to the author whoever wrote this. With this small disclaimer, i think we are a ready to roll....

Is Hell Exothermic Or Endothermic?


A true story: A thermodynamics professor had written a take home exam for his graduate students. It had one question:

Is hell exothermic or endothermic?
Support your answer with a proof.

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law or some variant.

One student, however wrote the following:


First, we postulate that if souls exist, they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls 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 souls entering hell, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and 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 in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant.

1) So, 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) Of course, 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.


The student got the only A.

Some online casinos depot forth higher payback percentages apropos location job games, and some modify known payout wedge audits on their websites. Assuming that the online casino is using an correctly programmed unsystematic band generator, register games like blackjack preoccupy an established borderline edge. The payout divide up during these games are established sooner than the rules of the game.
Bifurcate online casinos sublease or holdings their software from companies like Microgaming, Realtime Gaming, Playtech, Intercontinental Precipitate Technology and CryptoLogic Inc.
