Locked in a Warm Room With a Working Refrigerator. What Can You Do?

Read Full Transcript

I got a brainteaser. I really enjoy them. This 1 goes, "You are locked in an empty room with only an empty refrigerator plugged into a standard electric outlet. The room is uncomfortably warm and you want to cool the room to the maximum degree possible. What can you do?"

I think most people talk about opening the refrigerator door and trying to let the cool from the refrigerator even out with the heat from the room. In fact, that isn't the correct answer. Let me explain why.

How does refrigerator work? It's basically a heat pump. It takes it away from the contents of the refrigerator and empties the heat into the room. Thus, opening the refrigerator door is actually the worst thing you can do. That's because you're emptying out all the cool into the room and refrigerator still generating heat..

Here's what you actually do. Pull the plug from the refrigerator and then open the refrigerator door. What this does is empty out the lower temperature from the refrigerator with a higher temperature from the room. It's that they make a very comfortable; it is not going to suddenly make it a cold room.

The fact of the matter is you have to turn off the pump of the refrigerator and just let the cool air out from it.
