1.

1)One is that floppy disk heads are larger and much less precise than hard disk heads
2)Hard disks have a track density of thousands of tracks per inch, while floppy disks have a track density of 135 tracks per inch or less.

2.

A hard disk (HD for short) and floppy disk (FD for short) both work in the same manner, except that on can hold more information.

The FD uses a mechanical motor to move the read/write armature that hovers over the FD material (most comparable to cassette tape material). The HD works in a similar fashion. HD's have dense metallic disks inside that can spin at thousands of RPM's (rounds per minute).

1. Hard disk is the internal storage device in a computer while floppy disk is an external storage device.
2. The memory of hard disk is greater than that of a floppy disk.
