Middle C = K 2^(0/12) Hz is C# = K 2^(1/12) Hz , and so on till octave is C = K 2^(12/12), Is this correct? What is K in Hz? I can find the answer to second question but not the first. Does it not work this way; fractions of 12 of a power of 2.

Are these twelves of a power of 2 found naturally, like a horn, drum skin, wind pipe, or dare I say some natural variable of strings (thickness or weight OR tension)
