What is the difference between "no" and "not"? We know that "no" and "not" have the same meaning. I'm studying English. I hope to get help. Sorry for my language.

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
No expresses a general negative, such as when disagreeing, or indicates an absence of any of a particular noun.
(According to wikipedia): Not is the declarative form of no.
I'm pretty sure it classifies as an adverb, and negates the action of the verb in the emphatic form (do + verb).
NO negates the noun while NOT negates the verb.
There are NO people here. (noun being negated: people) The people are NOT present. (verb being negated: present)
