That all depends on which line they are above or below, and what key the music is in.Lets say it's in the key of C, with no sharps or flats at the beginning of the music. The notes are: on the five lines E,G,B,D,F. In the spaces, F,A,C,E. So if a note is in the first space regardless of it's value, whole, half, quarter etc. it's an F, And so on. I hope this helps.
