Dear Student,

Please find below the solution of your asked query:
  • Bitumen- It is a sticky, black and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. It is used instead of coal-tar for making roads. It may be found in natural deposits or may be a refined products
  • Bituminous- It is relatively soft coal containing bitumen. It is of higher quality than lignite and peat but of poorer quality than anthracite. It is regarded as sedimentary rock.
Hope this information clears your doubts about the topic.

Keep asking!!
