    Life in Hell

    Actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm:

    "Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
    Support your answer with a proof.

    Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
    (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or
    some such 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 that souls are moving into Hell and the rate 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. 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 since 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 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 as souls are

    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: 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.

    So which is it?

    If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Therese Banyan during my
    Freshman year, "That it will be a cold night in Hell before I sleep
    with you," and take into account the fact that I still have not
    succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then #2 cannot be true,
    and so Hell is exothermic.

    The student got the only A grade.

    In your dreams
    It's right up there with the Philosophy exam question.

    Question: Why?

    Answer that received 100% mark: Why not.

    Moral of the story. Keep it simple.
