Calculating How Loud It Would Be if All the Cats in the World Meowed at the Same Time

In a very amusing hand drawn-style animation, Joe Howard of The Problem Solver attempted to answer a student-posed question about how loud it would be if every single cat in the world meowed at the same time. Given all of the specific conditions required, however, Howard was unable to determine an exact calculation.

alright the question is how would it be if all 600 million cats in the world meowed at the same time. I don’t actually know that much about sound but I know enough to know that we’re robably going to have to alter the conditions of this question or else the answer is going to be a little disappointing.
