    Default Oh Hell Exam time

    Perhaps of interest to those of you studying heat transfer or refridgeration on your pc. Whether it's true story or not here's another from my old hard drive:



    Hell - exothermic or endothermic?

    This was forwarded from a graduate of the University of Oklahoma Chemical Engineering Dept., citing one of Dr. Schlambaugh's final test questions for his final exam for 1997. Note: Dr Schlambaugh is known for asking questions on his finals like: "Why do aeroplanes fly?"

    In May 1997, the "Momentum, Heat, and Mass Transfer 11" final exam question was: "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 thereof. One student, however wrote the following:

    "First, we postulate that if souls exist, they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls also must have a mass.

    So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it does not leave.

    "Therefore, no souls are leaving."

    As for souls entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some religions say 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 people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and all souls go to Hell.

    "With the birth and death rates what they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

    "Now, we look at the rate of change in the volume of 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 the souls and volume needs to stay constant.

    [A1] 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.

    [A2] Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase in 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 Theresa Banyan during my freshman year, that 'It'll be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and taking into account that I still have not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then [A2] cannot be true;..... thus, Hell is exothermic.

    The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.

    i did something like that in my physics class, i had to do a project on if God is real or not, and i decided to make my presentation longer and disprove the law of conservation of matter and energy by:

    1) stating that the universe is still expanding
    2) question the big bang by inquiring how the matter from the big bang appeared and the energy that is made
    3) and some other stuff that i cant remember....

    But i ended my presentation by saying if there is no God, then following the law of conservation of mass and energy, there is no universe and we do not exist because there was no preexisting matter and no preexisting energy that caused the creation of the planets and stars ans such....

    I got like 130% on my final grade
    What?
