What is the difference between artries veins and capillaries?

Arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart, to the cells that need them. Veins carry blood containing carbon dioxide back to the heart after the oxygen has been given to the cells. Capillaries are the thinnest arteries and veins. They are only one cell wide. As the blood cell passes through the very thin capillary, the cells on either side are given oxygen and carbon dioxide is taken from them. Therefore, the capillaries connect the arteries and veins. Veins are thinner than arteries. Arteries are thicker than capillaries.

What is the function of the veins and capillaries?

Capillaries are considered separately from veins. They are the smallest vessels in the circulatory system. Exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide occur through them.

The capillaries supply the cells with nutrients, fluids and oxygen. Capillaries also remove carbon dioxide.
