What is the difference between fixed unit and fixed work in MS project?

I am confused...

How do fixed units differ from fixed work in MS project. Please provide some examples...

If it's a fixed unit task, then adding more resources to the task will shorten the task duration (unit is fixed, work and duration is variable). Usually a fixed unit task is the default setting.

If it's fixed work, then changing the task duration means that the workload on resources will increase (for example, from 70% to 90%).
