Difference Between Primary and Secondary Cells

Difference Between Primary and Secondary Cells

Key Difference – Primary and Secondary Cells    Batteries are used when storage of electric power is needed. They accumulate and give away electric charges as an electric current when it is required. Batteries consist of either primary or secondary cells. The key difference between primary and secondary cells is the reusability. Secondary cells can […]

Difference Between Amplifier and Oscillator

Difference Between Amplifier and Oscillator

Key Difference – Amplifier vs Oscillator   Amplifier and the oscillator are two essential components in electric communication though a difference can be noted between them based on their functions. Amplifier is the inception of the concept of communicating through a wire, and the oscillator is the key to the wireless revolution. The key difference […]

Difference Between Angle of Incidence and Angle of Refraction

Difference Between Angle of Incidence and Angle of Refraction

Key Difference – Angle of Incidence vs Angle of Refraction   The key difference between the angle of incidence and angle of refraction is the sequential order of the two angles, made at a media interface by a wave. Refraction is a property of waves. A wave can have different velocities for different mediums. The […]

Difference Between Distortion and Overdrive

Difference Between Distortion and Overdrive-distortion

Key Difference – Distortion vs Overdrive   Distortion and overdrive are two technical terms which are used in many fields and the key difference between Distortion and Overdrive is that the overdrive is a type of distortion. Distortion is a vast topic compared to overdrive. Sometimes, they appear individually. In optics, distortion is referred to […]

Difference Between Red and Blue Light

Difference between Red and Blue light

Key Difference – Red vs Blue Light   The key difference between Red and Blue light is the impression created at the human retina. It is the perceptive understanding of the difference between two wavelengths. Characteristics of Red Light and Blue Light Some creatures cannot see different colours except black and white. But, humans identify […]

Difference between Conduction and Induction

Difference between Conduction and Induction

Key Difference – Conduction vs Induction   The key difference between conduction and induction is that, in conduction, energy is transferred by employing matter while, in induction, no medium or contact is required to transfer to energy. What is Conduction? Conduction is the process which transfer energy by either thermal or electric form. In thermal conduction, […]

Difference between Hydrometer and Hygrometer

Difference between Hydrometer and Hygrometer

Key Difference – Hydrometer vs Hygrometer   Hydrometer and Hygrometer are two different measuring gauges and the key difference between them is that Hydrometer measures the relative density of a liquid while Hygrometer measures the humidity in a given volume. What is a Hygrometer? By definition, Hygrometer is an instrument that can measure humidity in […]

Difference Between Sliding and Rolling friction

difference between sliding and rolling friction

Key Difference – Sliding vs Rolling friction   The key difference between sliding and rolling friction is that, sliding friction can be considered as a type of friction while rolling friction cannot be considered as a friction. However, rolling friction is often misunderstood to be a type of friction by a lot of students. Let […]

Difference Between Photoelectric Effect and Photovoltaic Effect

Difference Between Photoelectric Effect and Photovoltaic Effect

Photoelectric Effect vs Photovoltaic Effect   The ways in which the electrons are emitted in the photoelectric effect and photovoltaic effect create the difference between them. The prefix ‘photo’ in these two terms suggests that both these processes occur due to the interaction of light. In fact, they involve the emission of electrons by the absorption […]
