  • Exothermic since a lot of heat is coming out
  • I agree with sirus... exothermic. However would it be endothermic because its hell, and there is no opening for it to come out???
  • Strange, I did my Chemistry GCSE today and there was a question on exo and endothermic reactions... But the answer is exothermic as it gives out heat, but could be endothermic as it takes in the bodily heat of the people that go there.
  • There's a lot more to this than people might think! :)
  • A physics prof probably doesn't believe in heaven or hell and is just goofing with you.
  • Frankly, Hell is neither because it doesn't exist. Therefore, it neither exudes or consumes energy. I thought science dealt with fact, so there's the factual answer. Now, assuming Hell to exist, it would probably be exothermic. However, no one has ever stated how Hell produces its heat, or if its heat actually escapes Hell to its surroundings. However, we may deduce that it must exude heat energy enough that at least the inhabitants feel it.

  • I've seen this floating around the Internet for several years. "Is Hell Exothermic or Endothermic?" Dr. Schambaugh, of the University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering, Final Exam question for May of 1997. Dr. Schambaugh is known for asking questions such as, "why do airplanes fly?" on his final exams. His one and only final exam question in May 1997 for his Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II class was: "Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with 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 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, let's 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, then 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 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. Two options exist: 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 quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, "that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic." The student, Tim Graham, got the only A." SOURCE: http://www.pinetree.net/humor/thermodynamics.html
  • Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...exothermic
  • hell no its endothermic it means inside heat just like endoscope is inside vision
  • in what sort of religiously extrme nation is this where the national ciriculum for a science course is baced on religious belifs(not insulting Iran, don't stone me). If you were taking a geography exam and said the world was round, would you fail?
  • Hell, and the words that it is translated from Greek and Hebrew have been twisted into a very Un Biblical doctrine. Here is a link to a well researched article: http://www.watchtower.org/e/20020715/article_02.htm
  • neither, its nonexistent.
  • I think that would depend on if you are living in it, or dishing it out! lol.
