# Explain the difference between natural and acquired immunity and give an example of each.?

Relevance

Natural immunity is when you have always have antibodies available in your body to combat a disease. An example of this would be an immune response to cutting your hand. After you cut your hand, if the knife was dirty, your body produces antibodies to kill the bacteria etc...

Acquired immunity is just what it sounds like. An immunity that you acquire through infection. An example is chicken pox. When you are first infected with chicken pox you have no antibodies against the disease. After in fection, however, you build them up, and the next time you are exposed...you won't get sick since you now have acquired the immunity.

Hope this helps.

Simple. An expression does not have an answer and an equation does. Expression- 9+A Equation- 9+A=10 No, you cannot solve a variable in an expression, because there is no answer to an expression! Yes, you can solve for a variable in an equation, because it has a answer!
