These are the compounds that have same molecular formula but different arrangement of atoms in the space.
Optical isomers :-
The compunds that have same molecular formula but they rotate the plane polarised light to the different side, right side-dextrorotatory and left levorotatory.
These are the compounds that are mirror images of each other and if they are present in equal amounts then they cancel the optical activity of each other.
