Power Snatches and Power Cleans

This may sound stupid, I am sorry if it does. But what is the difference between Power Snatches adn Power Cleans? is there a difference? I work out at a real soft core gym with possibly the worst trainers int he world so i saved myslef the stress and did not ask them because they probably never heard of either. Any / All help is appreciated.

In a clean, you pull the weight to your chest. In the snatch you bring put the weight overhead. Heres a link that shows the exercises:
