As one would travel higher in elevation, to points where the atmosphere is very thin, does the volume of sounds decrease? I suppose the same question could apply to a vacuum jar-As air is removed from the jar would the sound of something (say, an alarm clock) be reduced so one could "hear" the reduction of volume as air is reduced?
