The real duration of a tick

QBASIC Sound command help:
SOUND frequency, duration
-frequency The frequency of the sound in hertz; a value in the range 37 through 32,767.
-duration The number of system clock ticks the sound lasts; a value in the range 0 through 65,535. There are 18.2 clock ticks per second.
Its irksome that Visual Basic doesn't give you this really useful command. Oh well; there you are: 18.2 clock ticks = 1 second, so 1 tick lasts 1/(18.2) seconds.
