In the Musical theory, the white is a figure of note represented by an oval of white color, attached to a pole. The position of this oval on the carried - line or line space - indicates the height Note of music.
the silence of white is the minim rest , figure of duration identical.
Two white and a minim rest:
the pole of the white one - following the example elsewhere of that of the other figures of note which are lower to him - is directed indifferently to the top or bottom for reasons of esthetics and facility of reading. One generally directs it to the top when the note is in bottom of the range and conversely, to limit the overflows. In polyphonic works , the orientation of the poles can be used to indicate different the voice.
the white one is equivalent to half of a round , to the double of a black , to the quadruple of a eighth note, to eightfold of a Double eighth note, etc
For example, in a measurement quantified 4/4, the white one is worth two times, that is to say half of the totality of measurement.
