What is the difference between Private Key and Public Key?

What is the main functional difference between these two keys and when do I use them except for account recovery?

This is how it works for Passbolt (see illustration)… Technically you don’t have to use them, except for account recovery… but you could use them outside of Passbolt for encryption like for email, files, code-signing, etc.
