Q: What is the difference between have the authority to do sth and have the right to do sth ?
A: The slight difference would be the actor in the sentence and the context. Ex: "The police have the authority to arrest citizens who break the law. Citizens have the right to know why they are being arrested."

In this example you could say "police officers have the right" but it would sound very odd to say "citizens have the authority" since authority is generally assumed to have been bestowed on people of position. You also could not say "the authority" for a passive action like "right to know" unless you wish to imply that the information will be seized.
