Question

Why do echoes produced in an empty auditorium usually decrease when it is full of people?


Solution

When the hall is empty there is no obstacles in between to reflect the sound other than the walls. When the hall is full of audiences the sound produced undergoes multiple reflection from the people and so it overlaps with the sound produced. Hence the listener is not able to distinguish between the original sound and the echo.
