Is there a difference between a wheel bearing and a strut bearing? If so, what is the difference?

Thank you in advance for your help.

A wheel bearing is for the wheels to rotate smoothly the strut bearing goes in at the top of the strut and allows the strut to move smoothly. The wheel bearing is a lot stronger then the strut bearing because the wheel bearing supports the weight of the car.
