For example, two flute players together make more sound than one. And three flute players make even more sound. But what about if there were thousands of flute players, or even millions playing at the same time in one city? Would the sound carry over to the next country? If everyone in China gathered in one place to play the same instrument, would we hear it over in the U.S.? Would they all go deaf from the loudness? I believe there is a limit past a certain point where the sound would reach a ceratin loudness and would get no louder. If that is true: using the flute example, do you know many flutes playing together it would take before reaching the point where additional flutes wouldn't add any more to loudness?
