In EMU's 1 power car is required for 3 coaches so for an EMU 12 coaches in length will have 4 power cars.
Whereas for MEMU's 1 power car is needed for 4 coaches.
So i am guessing MEMU's generates more power (OR they are more powerful) than EMU's. Thats why MEMU's are normally 16-20 coaches long whereas EMU's are generally of 12 coaches only.

EMU is Electric Multiple Unit which mainly runs in the Suburban sections of major cities.
MEMU is Mainline Electric Multiple Unit which runs on mainline generally for distances more than the suburban sections. But there are some exceptions to this definition as can be seen in the NDLS-MTJ section where 2 EMU's run daily between SSB-MTJ which is beyond the suburban section. Same is the case with NDLS-ALJN EMU. On the other hand MEMU runs on the NDLS-PNP section which is beyond the suburban section limit.

MEMU runs on the same line on which Normal Local/EXP/Mail/SF trains run.
(e.g. MEMU: Vadodara-Ahmedabad MEMU)
(Here consider Normal Local as long route local trains. e.g. Mumbai-Ahmedabad passenger)
Both

run on same (Main) track.

While EMU have distinguished tracks. e.g. Lifeline locals of Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai.
