What is the difference between Namespace and Assembly?

Namespace: 1. It is a Collection of names wherein each name is Unique. 2. They form the logical boundary for a Group of classes. 3. Namespace must be specified in Project-Properties. Assembly: 1. It is an Output Unit. It is a unit of Deployment & a unit of versioning. Assemblies contain MSIL code. 2. Assemblies are Self-Describing. [e.g. metadata,manifest] 3. An assembly is the primary building block of a .NET Framework application. It is a collection of functionality that is built, versioned, and deployed as a single implementation unit (as one or more files). All managed types and resources are marked either as accessible only within their implementation unit, or by code outside that unit.
