COMMENTS

This number figures in our standard 12-tone tuning of music today.

It represents the frequency ratio of a semitone in equal temperament. The equal-tempered chromatic scale divides the octave, which has a ratio of 2:1, into twelve parts of equal ratio: [2^(n/12), 2^((n+1)/12)), 0 <= n <= 11. - Daniel Forgues, Feb 28 2013
