"TREE FALLING IN THE WOODS THEORY"

BY DAVID NINOMIYA

If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound?  Yes it does.  This is probably the easiest of my theories to explain. Sound is created by waves in the air.  The waves are created through various ways, (e.g. objects hitting each other).  This is why when the tree hits the ground, sound waves are created.  Vibrations are then created as the waves hit other trees, the grounds, etc.  Those vibrations are sound. Regardless of whether anyone is around to hear it doesn’t affect the vibrations from being formed.  So if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, it still makes a sound.  It's just no one hears it.
