Can sound or light fill a space the same way water does?

For example, you can fill a cup or ballon or a room with water or sand to the point where no more can fit. Can the same be done with sound or light? Is there a point where if you put enough sound or light into an area that no more can fit? Both sound and light travel at specific speeds and are affected by gravity, so they must have some physical attribute to them? If light and sound cannot escape from a black hole then in theory, should be able to fill a space the same way water or sand does? Looking for a scientific answer here. Thanks.

In a room, sound is the vibration of the air in the room. To say that the room is full of sound means all of molecules in the air are vibrating. As you turn up the volume of the radio, the amplitude of sound wave increases. The only thing that limits this is power of the amplifier and the size of speaker. If you were to fill a room with sand, there will be a limit to amount of sand that it can hold. Since light has no mass and does not occupy any space, there is no limit to the amount of light that can exist in a specific space. This is my way of answering your question.

The room's wall are made of stuff. Sound and light are energy. At some point, you can increase the energy level (by either method), such that the walls explode or shake apart, or they burst into flames (without special cooling).

Yes, they do fill the space. A sound can be heard everywhere in the room, if it is loud enough. Likewise, you can shine a very bright spotlight on one wall, and even the space under the bed is lit.

hmm good question

Sounds are not affected by gravity. Sound are just ripples in the air.
According to Caramel 's Law, the light would melt the black hole to the point where the black hole's consistency would be, well, chewy, and would require quantum waferring to renew the hole to its original whole, almost like a Tesco quantum pack.
