Collision domain is the group of hosts in which collision can occur, but broadcast domain conists of all the groups of hosts that can proceed the broadcast frame. Broadcast domain may be collision domain but Collision domain may not be broadcast domain.

Broadcast Domain: A set of all devices that recieve broadcast frames originating from any device within the set. Broadcast domains are typically bounded by routers (or, in a switched network, by VLANs) because routers do not forward broadcast frames.Collision Domain: In Ethernet, the network area within which frames that have collided are propagated. Repeaters and Hubs prpagate collisions, LAN switches and bridges do not.
