What is the difference between a somersault and a cartwheel?

A somersault is, according to Merriam-Webster's 11th Collegiate Dictionary, 'a movement (as in gymnastics) in which a person turns forward or backward in a complete revolution along the ground or in the air bringing their feet over their head.' A cartwheel is a lateral handspring with arms and legs extended. So a somersault is turning along the ground and bringing your feet over your head. A cartwheel is doing a turn with your arms and legs outward. I hope this answers your question.
