Difference between /> and >

Tell us what’s happening:
I just want to ask, is there any difference between putting /> and > at the end of an element for example ?

Thank you :wink:

Your code so far
Example one with / :

<img
        id="header-img"
        src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/freecodecamp/original_trombones.png"
        alt="original trombones logo"
      />

Example two without / :

<img
        id="header-img"
        src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/freecodecamp/original_trombones.png"
        alt="original trombones logo"
      >

Link to the challenge:

img element is a self closing tag.
In HTML5 you can either used /> or > to close it.
It doesn’t matter.
