comment What is the difference between temperament and intonation?
@user1019696 that's not exactly how I'd say it. One thing is that temperament is about the construction of scales, and that is not reflected in the way you are using the term.

comment What is the difference between temperament and intonation?
@user1019696 there are at least two shades of meaning for intonation; the more basic one would be 1:1 -- ie the performer produces the notes of the desired scale. For some instruments (notably voice and unfretted strings) and some styles of musical performance, there is an additional layer of intonation which involves shading notes away from what they'd naively be in a manner that depends on the musical context and the interpretation of the player; this would be 1:many. The link to "expressive intonation" and the final paragraph of @aparente001's answer get at this additional layer.

@Some_Guy your comment is a better wording of what I'm trying to get at with this answer.

comment What is the difference between temperament and intonation?
@user1019696 No, intonation implies striving for the desired tone, which is not always a pure harmonic tone.

comment How do I know when it's time to change a tube on my amplifier?
Tubes do not wear out in the manner indicated by your calculations -- it's not like they have a fixed amount of output.
