What is the difference between Orbitals and energy level? The energy level is the same as an electron shell, right? And as far as i know Orbitals are area with high probability of finding an electron.

If so, how do they related to each other? Is electron shell another word for orbital but in simple terms? How do they visually relates to each other?
