Steel Strings

What is the difference in nylon and steel strings for guitars?

I think I have a steel string guitar. I'm not sure. How can I tell the difference?

For starters, the one are made of steel and the others are made of nylon. Seriously. The nylon strings are for classical guitars and the steel strings are for acoustical guitars. Acoustical guitars generally have stronger, thicker necks where the frets are and classical guitars have smaller ones. If you are in doubt, take it to the music store where you plan to buy your strings.
