Different between Master Details and Lookup Relationship?

·         You can't create a record without including an M-D relationship field.  It is a required field.  Lookups are not required fields.
·         Cascade deletes - When you delete the parent of a master-detail relationship, all of the child records get deleted too 
·         Rollup Summary fields are only available on master-detail relationships, not lookups. 
·         Master Relationship Parent Records inherit the child records but not in Look ups.
·         One other important difference is that in Master-Detail, it is the master that controls the ownership/visibility of the child record - the child record doesn't have a separate owner record, so can only be shared via the Parent's visibility rules...but not in Lookup.
