what is difference between meteors and meteoroids?

Dear Student

Meteors :- It is a bright light in the sky produced by meteoroid when it enters into the Earth's atmosphere. In dark sky, you can probably see it.

 

Meteorites :- Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, but if they survive the frictional heating and strike the surface of the Earth, they are known as meteorites.

Regards
