Hi Rashmi,

A website is described by its content, while a web application is described by its interaction with the user. That is, a website can likely consist of a static content repository that's dealt out to all visitors, while a web application depends on interaction and requires programmatic user input and data processing.

For example, a news site (shows essentially the same information to all visitors) would be a website, but a spreadsheet or a collaborative calendar (processes individual data) would be web applications.
