Physics In Hell Author Unknown

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, 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.
>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.
>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.
>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.

>It was not revealed what grade the student received.
