Sometimes young people can be so profoundly clever!
When a chemistry professor added an unusual bonus question to an exam, no one could know how students would respond.
The following question was given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term:
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote something so profound that the professor thought it deserved to be shared.
This student received an A+!
