Answer:


1. An axon or nerve fiber, is a long, slender projection of a nerve cell, or neuron, that conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell body  whereas Dendrites are the branched projections of a neuron that conduct the electrical stimulation received from other neural cells to the cell body to transmit signals into the cell body.

2.Axons also tend to be much longer than dendrites.
