Exactly, sounds are vibrations in the ear, if they don't reach an ear, no sound is made.

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


If an ugly and badly proportioned man took his clothes off in a crowd of people and everyone averted their eyes from him. Is he indeed naked?

it would not make a sound, because there would be no nerve cells in any nearby creature to convert the vibrations into sounds.

If two trees have sex in a forest, and no one is around to see it.

First off, a forest is never empty, ever heard of animals or insects. Besides, if your not going to hear it, who cares if it makes a sound.

Did you really have to put it into that term?
Posted 8/24/08
No, because you need 3 things to make a sound. I forget what the first two are but a listener is one of them. And if nothing is around to hear it, the answer is no (This according to a science book that I had when I was in high school)

Falling Tree + Ground = Sound
Tree falls in the ground and makes sound
This thread lacks logic

this is a trick question aint it :D
Both answer will be correct.

I'd normally say yes. yes it would make a sound.

But then again. If nobody was there to hear it then it might as well not happened

I'm sure a tree falling would make a sound...
but I'm just not sure if anyone would hear it.
AND it would suck if someone got crushed while it fell...
