// Sep 24th, 2013
Diamond, Rhombus vs Trapezoid   Diamond, Rhombus, and Trapezoid are all quadrilaterals, which are polygons with four sides. While rhombus and trapezium are properly defined in mathematics, diamond (or diamond shape) is a layman’s term for rhombus. Rhombus and Diamond A quadrilateral with all sides equal are in...

### Difference Between Nautical Mile and Statute Mile

// Sep 24th, 2013
Nautical Mile vs Statute Mile   Mile (or statute mile) and nautical mile are two measuring units of length, where statute mile is often used in measuring distances, in the land while nautical mile is used in the sea. However, the use of nautical mile has extended into other fields of navigation, such as aviation. Statute...

### Difference Between Circumcenter, Incenter, Orthocenter and Centroid

// Sep 23rd, 2013
Circumcenter, Incenter, Orthocenter vs Centroid   Circumcenter: circumcenter is the point of intersection of three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle. Circumcenter is the center of the circumcircle, which is a circle passing through all three vertices of a triangle.   To draw the circumcenter create any...

### Difference Between Rounding and Estimating

// Sep 23rd, 2013
Rounding vs Estimating   Rounding and estimating are two methods used for approximating a number for easier usage, when very large numbers are found. Both rounding and estimating are usually performed mentally, without the aid of writing or using a calculator. The goal of rounding and estimating is to make the...

NAD+, NADH vs NADPH   What is NAD+? NAD+ is the abbreviated symbol for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. It is a coenzyme present in biological systems. NAD+ is involved in the metabolism specifically in redox reactions. NAD+ contains a positive charge and, therefore, has the ability to oxidize other biological...

### Difference Between Pluripotent and Totipotent

// Sep 20th, 2013
Pluripotent vs Totipotent   The entire human body is made up of over 200 cell types. All these cell types basically arise from a single type of cell called ‘stem cells’. Stem cells are defined as the cells having the ability to self-renewal and to differentiate into one or all of the more than 200 cell...

### Difference Between Cotyledon and Endosperm

// Sep 20th, 2013
Cotyledon vs Endosperm   Cotyledon and endosperm are two types of tissues found in the embryo of flowering plants. They are important in absorbing and storing nutrients in plant embryos during seed germination. There are many different features exist in these tissues, present in both dicot and monocot. What is...

### Difference Between Alpha Beta and Gamma Radiation

// Sep 19th, 2013
Alpha Beta vs Gamma Radiation   A stream of energy quanta or particles with high energy is known as radiation. It naturally occurs when an unstable nucleus transforms into a stable nucleus. The excess energy is carried away by these particles or quanta. Alpha Radiation (α Radiation) A helium-4 nucleus emitted...

### Difference Between Pitch and Volume

// Sep 18th, 2013
Pitch vs Volume   Loudness and Pitch are characteristics of sounds. Loudness refers to the magnitude of the sound heard, and pitch is related to the frequency of the sound. Loudness, in common terms, is referred as the volume. Pitch and volume are parts of music and sound engineering vernacular, but the term...

### Difference Between Classification and Tabulation

// Sep 18th, 2013
Classification vs Tabulation   Both classification and tabulation are methods of summarizing data in statistics, which makes further analysis of data to draw inferences from the data. In this article, we will discuss in detail the two methods of summarizing the data and distinguish between classification...

### Difference Between Nebula and Galaxy

// Sep 16th, 2013
Nebula vs Galaxy   Nebulae and galaxies are deep sky celestial objects which can only be seen clearly with the aid of a telescope. With the naked eye or low powered telescopes both types of objects can be seen as fuzzy patches in the night sky. Therefore in the early developmental stages of astronomy confusions...

### Difference Between Aerobic and Anaerobic Bacteria

// Sep 15th, 2013
Aerobic vs Anaerobic Bacteria   Bacteria are considered as a type of prokaryote found in all over the world. They can survive almost all known environment on earth because of their tiny body size and fast growing ability. Bacteria can be divided into two categories; aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, depending...

### Difference Between Aerobic and Anaerobic Glycolysis

// Sep 15th, 2013
Aerobic vs Anaerobic Glycolysis   Glycolysis is the first step of ATP formation that takes place in the cytosol outside of the mitochondria, using glucose as the energy source. It occurs in both aerobic and anaerobic environments, and is the only pathway which has the ability to produce ATP in the absence of oxygen....

### Difference Between Anabolic and Androgenic

// Sep 15th, 2013
Anabolic vs Androgenic   All anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone and have unique molecular structures which are similar to testosterone. Anabolic steroids are basically used to enhance the anabolic functions of testosterone while depressing the androgenic effects of it. However, none...
