What is the difference between an orbital sander and a sheet sander?

The same function for Both orbital sanders and sheet sanders move an abrasive in a circular pattern.

The diffierence is while a sheet sander uses sheets of sandpaper as the abrasive, an orbital sander uses special sanding discs. These discs come in multiple grits, and they tend to cost more than regular sandpaper.
