The root tone or tonic note is the 1st note in a chord or scale, its the note which indicates the key. In the C Major Scale the notes are C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C the Cmaj chord is formed using the scale degrees 1,3,5 this means 1st note of the scale C(1 root) E(3) and G(5) these three notes represent the increments on the scale that form the Cmaj chord.
