Question of chemistry
Here is the version of a "extra" question of chemistry posed at the University of Nanterre.
The response of a student was so zany that the teacher shared it with his colleagues on the Web, and that is why you have the pleasure to read it...
"Is Hell exothermic (1) or endothermic (2)"
(1 = evacuates heat, 2 = absorbs heat)
Most students have expressed their belief using Boyle's Law (if a gas expands it cools and vice versa) or its variants.
However, one student had the following answer:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell varies with time.
We need to know at what rate souls come in and out of Hell.
I think we can assume without risk that once the souls have entered Hell, they will not come out again.
So no soul comes out.
Similarly for the calculation of the number of entries of souls into Hell, we must look at the functioning of the different religions that exist throughout the world today.
Most of these religions say that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell.
Since there is more than one religion expressing this rule, and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell...
Now let's look at the volume change speed of Hell because Boyle's Law specifies that "for the pressure and temperature to remain the same in Hell, its volume must dilate proportionally to the souls' entrance".
Therefore, there are two possibilities:
1) If Hell expands at a slower rate than the souls' entrance, then its temperature and pressure will increase indefinitely until the Hell breaks out.
2) If Hell expands at a speed higher than the speed of souls' entry into Hell, then the temperature will decrease until the Hell freezes.
Which one to choose ?
If we accept the postulate of my classmate Jessica having affirmed me during the first year of studies "It will be cold in Hell before I sleep with you", and taking into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then the 2nd hypothesis must be true.
So I'm sure Hell is exothermic and has already frozen...
The corollary of this theory is that as Hell has already frozen, it no longer accepts any soul and so it exists no longer...
...leaving alone Paradise, and proving the existence of a Divine Being, which explains why, last night, Jessica kept shouting "Oh... my God!"
