Solution :-

The difference between a skeletal muscle and a cardiac muscle are:

Skeletal Muscle Cardiac Muscle
Skeletal muscles are attached to
the bones and skins
The heart is the only organ with cardiac muscles.
They are voluntary muscles as their activities are under
the voluntary control of the nervous system.
They are involuntary muscles as their activities are not directly
controlled by the nervous system.
They are controlled by the central nervous system,
endocrine system and different chemicals.
The cells of the skeletal muscles are straight,
cylindrical, non-branched and multinucleated.
The cells of the cardiac muscles are cylindrical,
branched and uni-nucleated.
They do not have intercalated discs. Intercalated discs connect the cells and aid in the
coordination or synchronization of the heartbeat.
They have a high energy requirement. They have an intermediate energy requirement.
They contract rapidly and are fatigued easily in a short period of time. They contract rapidly but do not fatigue easily.
They help in movement and locomotion. They help in the contraction and relaxation of the heart.
