I'm currently doing some research on sound waves and their relation to making a guitar highly energetic. I have a few questions on this topic that I would like to ask. 1. The waves created on a guitar string. Are they 1 dimensional transverse (standing) waves? 2. Does this vibrational energy get transferred to the bridge, then plate of the guitar in turn creating yet another 1 dimensional, transverse motion up and down? 3. If this is this motion simply up and down? 4. And does this create a 1 or 2 dimensional wave propogation within the guitar's 'resonance box'? Any other information regarding this area would be highly appreciated.
