I'm doing a project for school about materials and their uses, so I decided to do guitar strings (maybe not the best idea), but I need to find out some info about how strings are made, how they resonate and basicaly how they work.

Gah, everyone does guitar strings for Physics stuff about materials. Do something interesting. You won't actually get to play guitar in your project. Guitar strings are basically metal wire under tension. That's it.

No I am the only one in the class doing it. I have too look at the bulk properties of the material and how the chemical structure allows the string to resonate how it does. This is A Level science, not some Middle school Crap

I mean all guitar players.

I know roughly what you have to do, I did it for A Level as well. And I was going to do guitar strings. But there's so little you can relate it to. I changed it to the properties of steel in suspension bridge cables. They have to hold much more weight and the actual construction of the cables gives you more stuff to talk about. Guitar strings doesn't give you much room for manouver, because as materials go, they're not particularly interesting. Yes, guitar is fun, but analysing the properties of guitar strings isn't. Go do something more interesting, like how the materials in the construction of jet fighters or something work.
