To calm down is to become tranquil or calm. For example:
“The storm calmed down.” It could mean a storm that was going on for a while finally stopped and was calm outside.
The word “calm” can also be used to describe helping someone feel calm again after they have been upset.
For example: “The lady calmed down after the police found the purse that was stolen.”
Another example: “The teacher calmed down her students after the fire alarm went off.”
Another way you could also say this is, “The firemen helped the couple to calm down after a car accident, helping them get out.”
So, again calm down means to become tranquil or relaxed and peaceful again after a period of being upset.
