    Ratios in the strings

    Hello People,
    I am working on a physics lab in a class and I was wondering what the ratio of nickel, steel, tin, and carbon steel are in each string (so I can calculate the specific heat constant for the strings). I am currently using Ernie Ball Super Slinky Bass Roundwound Bass Strings, (2834)

    If anyone knows any useful information about this, I would would be extremally grateful.

    They may not want to disclose the exact alloy they use. Also I think the outer wraps are nickel plated, so they may not be able to tell you what the exact composition is.
