Use Protect Sheets and Ranges - this option will protect content (complicated formulas, raw data resources, a series of calculations) in your spreadsheet by preventing intentional edits and unintentional changes by those who have access to your Google Sheet.
This option is useful is your client, department head, or various other individual needs access to a certain portion of a spreadsheet to collaborate, but doesn't need access to all tabs or cells.
Think of Protect Sheets and Ranges as a child-lock to formulas you don't want being altered or for certain tabs that have no use to your spreadsheet collaborator.

Publish to Web - this option allows you to send a new URL to a client or stakeholder, and allows them to see specific or all of the contents of your spreadsheet - without being able to edit it.
