Can someone tell me the difference between acoustic and classical guitars briefly?

I m a amateur guitar player. I play some chords. Can u plz suggest me would it be a good choice if I pick a Classical guitar. I am not used to “plucking strings” style. But I still liked the Classical guitar. Can u plz help me on this..? SHOULD I CHOOSE A ACCOUSTIC GUITAR OR A CLASSICAL GUITAR?

Chosen Answer:

Acoustic guitars use modern, wound metal wires for strings, similar to, but not exactly the same as an electric guitar. The frets and and neck of the guitar are also of similar proportions to an electric.

Classical guitars use nylon strings, and the necks tend to be wider (but also thinner) than acoustic guitars.

    Acoustic means not amplified so a classical and folk or western guitar are all acoustic.
    Classical is acoustic but is designed for classical music. The most visible difference is nylon strings.

    You can play any kind of music on almost any kind of guitar. However, Some were designed with a certain type of music in mind.
