Everything we see on our monitors are bitmaps or pixels - you will not be able to upload a vector graphic file to a website and have it visible... cos it isn't pixels.

Vector graphics are used to create a piece of art or design, then either printed or saved as a web compliant file like jpeg, png, gif, tiff etc (which are all bitmaps) and upoaded.

Image resolution is a whole different area, but it is possible to make a bitmap look just as good as its vector brother on most regular screens and sizes... its only when zooming that you'll see a difference.

vector graphics don't have a set size, it is a mathematical calculation that resizes the image based on how you size it.

Bitmap Graphics:
raster based image
Individual pixels can be show in here
It is kind of fuzzy or unclear images

Vector Graphics:
smaller than bitmap pictures
more scalable
Very clean images
these are some differences that i know, it might be helpful for you.
