One difference is due to their nitrogen bases. RNA's bases are adenine (A), uracil (U), guanine (G), and cytosine (C). DNA's bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G), and cytosine (C). Another difference is that DNA is a double-stranded molecule with a long chain of nucleotides, while RNA is a single-stranded molecule with a shorter chain of nucleotides.
