An acute triangle leans to the right but an equilateral triangle is wide and straight.

An acute angle has three inside angles all of which are smaller than 90 degrees, which adds up to 180 degrees of course, and the sides are not necessarily equal.

An equilateral triangle has three sides which are equal and each inside angle = 60 degrees (that is all three of them are the same angle automatically).

Sides are equal or angles are equal = equilateral triangle.
