This paper explores the time required for the CO2 levels in a sealed lecture theatre,  filled with 100 students, to reach life threatening levels, effectively giving a estimated time limit for a lecture.We  found  that  for  the  lecture  theatre  we  modelled,  it  would  take  30  hours  and  55  minutes  for CO2 levels to rise to deadly levels.  Therefore, we estimate that a 31 hour lecture is the maximum lecture length students can endure, in a sealed lecture theatre, before they literally die.
