    The velocity of the vibrations performed by a string, of a determinate length, and distended by different weights, is as the square roots of the stretching weights: quadruple weights therefore will produce double velocity, and consequently double the number of vibrations in the same time; a noncuple weight will produce vibrations of triple velocity, or a triple number in the same time.
