A4 is 440Hz. The scale is logarithmic, with an octave (12 notes) doubling the frequency. So you have notes at base*21/12, base*22/12, ...

Just to add a little side note (pun intended) to Fruny''s post: middle C is at ~263 Hz (different standards defined it differently) and the doubling or halving of the frequency over which you increase or decrease the pitch by one octave is called a harmonic, as in harmony - frequencies that sound perfect in unison.

The closest standard around to you is the MIDI standard - Googling for a MIDI note frequency table always yields results.
