What is the differences between centrifugal and reciprocating pump?

centrifugal pump uses centrifugal action while reciprocati pump operates on resiprocating motion of piston
A centrifugal pump will typically give you a higher flow rate but a lower pressure, where a piston pump will give you more pressure but a lower flow rate.
