Synonyms of "Net" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between net and netting ?
A: A net is the full noun. As in “I catch fish with a net.” Netting is what nets are made of.
To get a bit more complex, netting is not countable. It is what we call a mass noun. Other mass nouns are things like water, rope, and most materials like iron or copper. In order to talk about how much netting there is, we need to use a unit of measurement like meters or square meters. In general, mass nouns require some type of measurement. This might be length, volume, area, or mass.

So, we can say “this net is made of 25 square meters of netting.” Or, if nobody asked about the size, we can simply say that the net is made of netting.
Q: What is the difference between net and web ?
A: net is the network where you search information and web is a page or a site to visit if you want to download something.

Q: What is the difference between net and web ?

“She tossed her basketball into the hoop, she got nothing but net” meaning the net hanging off a basketball hoop or if you go fishing or hunting you can use a net to catch certain animals.

Q: What is the difference between net and web ?
A: As in "Internet", they are the same:
- I'm on the web/net

As in "something to catch something in", they are a little different.

You would, for example, not use "net" when talking about what a spider sits on. That is a Spider's Web.

You would also not say fishermen catch fish in a web - they use a net.

"Net" has a connotation of stronger, sturdier material. "Web" is usually just describing a spider web!
