    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

    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 and has 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." [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A".
