Members of the Senate have more responsibilities than members of the House, since they are numerically fewer (100 compared to 435).

Because the Senate is there so that each state can have a very say and get equal representation to every other state. (2 Senators per state) The House of Representatives is provided so the bigger states feel that they are fairly represented because they have more citizens, they feel they need more representation. These differences likely cause varying requirements.

the requirements for serving in the senate are stricter because they must be at least 30 years old, have been U.S. citizens for 9 years, and live in the state they represent. but the house of representatives must be at least 25 years old, live in the state where they were elected and have been U.S. citizens for 7 years

The House of Representatives and the Senate are separate because the government wanted to have groups of people vote on laws for the states themselves. So they mad the House of Reps. Proportional to the population of the state, like California has 52 people in the House of Reps. and Alaska only has 1 because of the population difference on the other hand the Senate is equal because each state has 2 Senators, both California and Alaska have 2 Senators.
