Expert Answer:

Orbit Orbitals
It is a well defined circular path in which electrons were supposed to move in Bohr’s model. It is the three dimensional region in the space around the nucleus in which probability of finding the electrons are maximum.
An orbit can accommodate 2n2 electrons,where n is number of orbit. An orbital can contain maximum of 2 electrons only.
Orbits are non directional. Orbitals are directional except 's' orbital
