SQL Enter, Edit, Store & Retrieve by single command or statement where as PL/SQL process all SQL statements one at a time. With PL/SQL, an entire block of statements process in a single command line.

sql is structured query language ,various queries are used to handle the database in a simplified manner. while pl/sql is procedural language contains various types of variable,functions and procedures,

SQL gives complete access to our data.I , mean ,we can get to everything...eventually...in less than ideal ways in many cases.There is no guarantee of efficiency. SQL Provides no ability to
1) Loop through records,manipulating them one at time 2) keep code secure by offering encryption, and sorting code permanently on the server rather than the client 3) Handle Exceptions. 4) Work with Variables,Parameters,Collections,Records,Arrays,Objects,Cursors, Exception,BFILES,etc.

Sql as the name suggest it is just structured query language wheareas PLSQL is a commbination of Programming language & SQL.

PL/SQL is abbreviation of Procedural Language/Structured Query Language i.e. it is an entension to SQL from Oracle. Now, as the name suggests, Once you know what a procedural language can offer, you better understand what PL/SQL offers more than SQL (e.g. looping, variables)?

SQL is Structured Query Language whereas PL/SQL is extension to SQL and we can use it to do programming at backend.
