A process is an executing instance of an application.A thread is a path of execution within a process. Process can contain multiple threads.

Threads are used for small tasks, whereas processes are used for more 'heavyweight' tasks - basically the execution of applications. Threads(Light weight Processes) share the address space of the process that created it; processes have their own address.
