If a huge tree were to fall in an empty forest with nobody in it. Would it make a sound?

--a topic started bac in my elementary school year so dont give me credit for this, i just put this on random. =P

No, it wouldn't make a sound because by the dictionary's definition of sound is the sensation produced by stimulation of the organs of hearing by vibrations transmitted through the air or other medium. So if no one is around to hear it then the tree didn't make a sound.

I don't get it but okay... the point I'm trying to make is it will make a sound lol, look up the definition of sound you'll see that I'm correct and so is everybody else

sound doesn't have to be a sensation, it can just be vibrations transmitted through air by itself. but you're right it doesn't make a sound when you go by that definition
