RNA and DNA are both nucleic acids, but RNA is single stranded, DNA is double stranded.

RNA contains Ribose as the 5 carbon sugar in its nucleotides, while DNA has Deoxyribose

RNA has Uracil as a nitrogen base, while DNA contains Thymine.

DNA is transcribed to mRNA

mRNA is translated at the ribosome to produce a polypeptide (protein)
