What are Brick and Block?

A brick is the most important building material used to make walls, pavements and other element in construction. In olden days the term brick was used to refer a unit composed of clay, but it is now used to denote rectangular material made from shale, calcium silicate clay, clay-bearing soil, concrete or soil material. Bricks are usually merged by interlocking them or using mortar or by adhesives. 

Block is typically larger than brick but is a similar term referring to a rectangular unit composed of aggregates of certainly designed mixtures depending on the strength required and is lightweight.

The most important difference between blocks and bricks is in the size, composition, shape and weight. Blocks usually are bigger and lightweight and are made from concrete in comparison to brick.
