What "makes" a smoothing and scrub plane

Hi guys,
I'm curious, what characteristics make these planes? If I recall, a smoothing planes has a tight mouth, and pretty straight blade, while a scrub has a large mouth and a large camber blade..? Not sure though.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I love Patrick's Blood and Gore! Great place to find anything about planes!
