"Hemholtz constructed a series of resonators, each one of which responds powerfully to a single tone of certain pitch or wavelength. they are metallic vessels, nearly spherical, having an opening, as at A, for the admission of the sound waves." -Avery 1895

"A screw is a cylinder with a helical proection winding around its circumference. This helix is called the thread of the screw. The distance that a point of the helix is drawn back or advanced in the direction of the length of the screw during one turn is called the pitch of the screw." —Hallock 1905

Screw-and-Worm gearing is a type of gearing in which the velocity ratio is independent of the radii of the pitch surfaces, the teeth of the wheels essentially being portions of screw surfaces. This kind of gearing is used in speed-reducing arrangements.

A tuning fork is an acoustic resonator in the form of a two-pronged fork with the tines formed from a U-shaped bar of elastic metal (usually steel). It resonates at a specific constant pitch when set vibrating by striking it against a surface or with an object, and emits a pure musical tone after waiting a moment to allow some high overtones to die out. The pitch that a particular tuning fork generates depends on the length of the two prongs. Its main use is as a standard of pitch to tune other musical instruments.
