      During the Renaissance there was no science of sound as we currently understand it. Conjectures about sound were provided by observations of .   A string, tied at A, is kept in tension by W, a suspended weight, and two bridges, B and the movable bridge C, while D is a freely moving wheel, density may be tested by using different strings. A monochord, also known as sonometer (see below), is an ancient musical and scientific laboratory instrument, involving one (mono) string ().The term monochord is sometimes used as the class-name .

    The Division of the Canon is an ancient Pythagorean treatise on the relationship between mathematical and acoustical truths. Euclidean in style, sectional in nature, and essentially Pythagorean, the Division has been susceptible to quotation since antiquity and has attracted the attention of many musicologists, classicists, mathematicians, and historians of science.
