Free radical is an unpaired electron, versus a carbocation is like a C with only 3 bonds.

So...a free radical on carbon would be 3 bonds (6 PAIRED electrons), and 1 unpaired. So a total of 7 electrons

carbocation would be like NH_4 - 4 bonds or an Oxygen with 3 bonds.

Kind of similar, but different. You also get free radicals from homolytic cleavage of a bond, and carbocations you can get a number of ways

Carbo cation has SP2 hybridization but free radical is SP3 hybridised so carbocation and free radical differs in this way.
