Definition of uproar

The word disturbance is widely used in our language to express primarily the disorder , concern or tumult that a situation causes in people and that then as such makes them restless and even in some situations it is quite complex to contain them .

One of the common uses of uproar is to indicate when there are many voices that are heard, whether in a room, in a public place, in a meeting and then such a situation generates quite a large and annoying noise . The consortium meeting was a ruckus, nobody heard anybody and the underlying problems could not be fixed .
Undoubtedly, the synonym that we use the most for this sense of the term is that of bustle , which refers to the noise caused by many people who speak at the same time.
On the other hand, when disorder or tumult is generated in a public show , because some people got into conflict and started fighting, either by hitting or verbally, we usually express it in terms of uproar. The opposition's campaign closure culminated in an uproar by those and the police had to be present to order the situation .

It should be noted that the gathering of crowds often creates a ruckus.

And the other of the uses that we attribute to this word in colloquial language is to refer a concern that we are feeling about something or the shock that an issue caused us , that is, when something breaks with our order or alters the normal course of things. For example, when an unexpected news reaches our ears, for example, an ex is about to get married, that news will cause a great fuss in us.
From the above it is easy to deduce that the concept that is opposed to that of uproar is that of calm , because precisely calm implies the opposite, a state in which peace , tranquility and harmony rule .
