how does a silencer in a gun absorbs the loud noise of the gun?

Expert Answer:

When a gun is fired, the explosion of gun powder pushes the bullet forward. This causes the hot gases formed from explosion to burst out of the barrel of the gun with large noise.
 
The silencer attached to the barrel is larger in diameter than the barrel. This causes the gases to slow down and gives them more time to exit the barrel thereby reducing the noise level considerably.
