What's the difference between the cell wall and cell membrane?

Cell wall:

Only present in plant cells, it provides structure and is completely permeable to biological molecules.

 

Cell membrane:

Much thinner than cell wall and is present in all cells. It is selectively permeable to certain molecules.
