For those people who have no idea What Exothermic and Endothermic is.

Exothermic = gives off heat
Endothermic = absorbs heat.

So do u think it gives off heat or absorbs heat xD

(atleast try to explain the unexplainable......)

well our vision of hell, disregarding dante, is fire and flames. exothermic. but since heat travels from areas of high concentration to low concentration)like water), the people sent to hell are experiencing endothermic heat as they absorb the heat giving off because the [ ] of heat outside is > than the [ ] of heat inside.

for the non nerds, [ ] means concentration

edit: lol did i really just try to explain that?! lmao.

I know what you mean. Nice explanation. basically, he explained it.

(wondering why i know: I study in a special science school XD)

burn in hell..huh..well then that means that people sent to hell only feel endothermic absorption to an extent..until they burn off and release energy, meaning exothermic.

but then technically, you dont just burn off and disappear..your just there..burning.

so then the exothermic heat given off by the flames keep getting absorbed. so that means there will be a time when the [ ] of heat in hell (H) and [ ] of heat in the people (h) will either reach equilibrium at one point. after that, [H] will continue to decrease while [h] increases, assuming nothing affects the system. but then are we also to assume that hell has infinite amount of heat? technically its underground right..thats the perspective..so we can assume that H will get its energy from the earth's core. so...if enough people go to hell, the world will end. LOL.

lol bellus, how did you come up with this thread?

um we don't even know if hell is a closed system or not.....is it expanding....is it not...etc?

lol I can't believe I'm replying to this.

lol i remember goin to a bar with a buncha my buddy's classmates for their after-final project celebration... and one of the nerdy TA's was hitting on one of the girls and they were discussing this exact topic.

i think he said endothermic...

Well there is the whole fact that if hell were at the center of the Earth you would be crushed in seconds by the gravity. And at the center of the earth you have near (near in this case is actually still very far away) the effect of a black hole. You would be extremely condensed.
So that rules out hell being at the center of the earth.
And either way the question is "Is Hell Exothermic or Endothermic" not what are we experiencing in hell.

Hell would have to be Exothermic because Exothermic refers to a transformation in which a system releases energy (heat) to the surroundings

and if Hell was endothermic it means it would be colder than it's surroundings.

so how exactly is this explaining the unexplainable? because it doesn't exist?

WOW score and I get to use this document I have stored for months now (will actually get mentioned in my theory for the sake of connecting stuff O_o)



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 two cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic."

The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.

lol nice explanation i get wat ur trying to say and yes i kind of think to.....so yea its exothermic cause we usually go to hell to burn....from to expression go burn in hell >.<!!!

Weell in dantes inferno it actually refers to the deepest parts of hell being frozen solid so it couldn't be endothermic (assuming the bottom in the centre of hell)
