a linear gradient is a straight progression and a radial gradient is a circular progression.

A linear gradient is horizontal, i.e the gradient colors appears as one on top of the other but for the radial, it takes a shape of either an oval or circle.

A linear gradient progress in linear way,whereas radial gradient propagate either in a circle or ecliptic way.
