differences:

1) paperchromatogrpahy uses the capillary force of water to flow and electrophoresis uses a potentialdifference and thus a voltage.

2) electroforesis recuires a net charge, while paperchromatography does not.

3) paperchromatography takes less long then electrophoresis, but electrophoresis has the best separation.

similarities:

1) both a separation on the basis of molecular size
