Sound waves entering an ear

Bang your head! Scientists at Stanford University created a sound that measures a whopping 270 decibels. The sound was created underwater and is believed to be the limit of how loud a sound can be.

Ready to put on a pair of earplugs and give the sound a listen? Not so fast. Scientists say earplugs would do no good. The sound is so loud, eardrums, heart, lungs, and other internal organs would instantly rupture.
