String and spring both transmit force from one point to another in a body system. In addition, the string facilitates change of direction of the force, whereas spring facilitates storage of force.
String and spring are very close in their roles and functionality in a mechanical arrangement. Main features of two elements in their ideal forms are :
* String : Inextensible, mass-less : Transmits force
* Spring: Extensible and compressible, mass – less : Transmits and stores force
Hope this helps.
