    • Cut another piece of cardboard of size ~20 cm x 15 cm. Like above, roll it into a cone, keeping the diameter of one end small enough to fit inside the smaller cone

    • Outer diameter of the cone for the given size turns out to be around 6 cm.

    • Check whether the cones are fitting into each other properly; it should be convenient to detach and attach them routinely

    • Insert the smaller cone first to hear through and observe whether there is any difference in audibility.

    • Join the bigger cone to the smaller one

    • Continue listening to see if there's any difference in the loudness or clarity of sound.

    • How does the diameter of the cone affect hearing?

    • What happens if we use cones with large diameter at the end away from the ear?

    • What is the range of sound in decibels that is normal to human ear?

    • Make cones of different sizes similar to different animals and compare the difference in range of sounds which are compatible for humans and animals.
