We may see many times when we place our ear at the open end of any empty vessels, we hear much noise. There is also an English proverb that “Empty vessels make the most noise“. Actually, all the proverbs are framed with a practical observation.
We may notice that these empty vessels will make much noise than the materials filled vessels. If we keep our ear at the open-end of a snail shell, we can hear the wind roaring sound in the seashore. Did you get doubt about this why it happens so? No problem, I am here to explain you clearly what is the reason behind it. Let’s move on to learn…
Know we learn the science behind this practical observation. We know that the sound travels fast in solid state materials than the liquid and gaseous state materials. When we apply force on the object then this sound produced because of its vibrations.
When we beat an empty vessel then the air present inside the vessel and the air present outside the vessel will also vibrate. The reason behind the generating more sound in the empty vessel is because there is no particular limit for vibration in free space.
If we beat the vessel when it is fully filled with water then it’s mass increases. The sound generated only if we use more force than the previous case. Because that the vibration limit decreases. Also, the filled vessel has the chance to decrease the vibrations.

But also the without applying any force the sound generates because the air flowing into the vessel will collide to the bottom surface and reflects another side such the vibrations were generated.
