Lime is calcium oxide (CaO, or hydroxide Ca(OH) 2 ); cement is a more complex compound, generally a calcium aluminosilicate. Cement is a combination of silica-alumina minerals while lime lacks this property.It does not have any particular mineral in it Minerals present in cement actually enhances t…he binding power of mortar so as in case of cement we have more chances of strong binding. Lime increases its volume by 2 to 3 units so it cant be used in the process of construction as it can cause eruption. Lime absorbs carbon-dioxide and ultimately forms calcium carbonate(a protective sheath) As a result, lime mortar is considered by environmentalists to be "carbon neutral." In contrast, cement production contributes greatly to global warming, as copious amounts of carbon dioxide are released during its production. ( Full Answer )

Limes are green and Lemons are yellow? :P haha jk, I'll give you a better answer than that! A lime has denser flesh than a lemon which makes it heaver. Limes contain more acid than lemons, and are more sour. But lemons are small, green and more bitter before they mature. When they finally turn ye…llow they are more sweet when matured. When put into a glass or bowl of water, a lime will sink to the bottom, and a lemon will float on the top. Could the difference in density be due to a difference in sugar content or a difference in lipid (oil) content? Lipids are less dense than water. Lemons are known for their lemon oil. Cut a lemon and feel the oil on the surface. A small, dense, green, immature lemon floats in water! If you need/want more information, see link. ( Full Answer )
