ok I pulled this info. maybe it will help explain why the two are the same.
Chemically, granite and rhyolite are exactly the same. They are made up of the same constituent minerals, in the same relative proportions.
The difference between them lies in how fast they crystallized, or more specifically, where they crystallized.
Granite crystallized slowly, beneath the surface, so its crystal grains are larger. This is an intrusive, or plutonic igneous rock.
Rhyolite crystallized quickly, i.e. during an event such as a volcanic eruption, and its crystal grains are very small and poorly formed. This is an extrusive, or volcanic igneous rock
