<lib1790> so, at this college there was an extra credit question "Is hell 
endothermic or exothermic"
<lib1790> this is what one kid wrote:
<lib1790> First, we postulate that if souls exist, then 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.
<lib1790>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.
<lib1790> 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 
<lib1790>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 (i.e.,Hell is exothermic).
<liv1790>Of course, if hell is expanding at a rate faster than the 
increase of souls in hell, than the temperature and pressure will drop 
until hell freezes over (i.e.,Hell is endothermic).
<lib1790>So which is it? If we accept the postulate given by Ms.Therese 
Banyan during my freshman year, "That it will be a cold night in hell 
before I go out with you," and take into account the fact that I still 
have not succeeded in having a relationship with her, the second case 
cannot be true. Therefore, hell is exothermic.
<lib1790> the kid was the only one who got credit
