I saw this article about things I've often wondered about. Things like the "dead" or non-vibrating sections of tuned strings, the effects of break angle (tension) on the player and more.
Enjoy...

In my non scientific mind{not that there is a scientific part of my mind} the more downward string pull the harder it is to press the strings down.The harder it is to push the strings down the quicker you hand gets tired.No matter the action hieght.

Nice article, the diagrams show why heavier string gauge can allow lower action resulting in easier playing.
