How hot is it in the Hell?

    a true story)

    A thermodynamics professor had written a take home exam for his
    graduate students. It had one question: "Is Hell exothermic
    (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your
    answer with a proof."

    Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's
    Law (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is
    compressed) or some variant.

    One student, however, wrote the following:

    First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time.
    So, we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and
    the rate they are 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 how many souls are 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,
    you will go to Hell. Since there are more than one of these
    religions and since 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 of the volume in Hell because
    Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure
    in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as
    souls are added. This gives two possibilities:

    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). Of course, 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 postulate given to me by Ms. Therese Banyan
    during my Freshman year, "That it will be a cold night in Hell
    before sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I
    still have not succeeded in having ***ual relations with her,
    then #2 cannot be true, and so Hell is exothermic.

    The student got the only A.

    according to islam.....the fire in hell is 70 times more than the fire on earth
