The only difference is that
URI is only for identifying the resource.
URL is for locating/ finding resources.URL will contain request to URI i.e URI is a part of URL

URI: is a
that identifies any resource. Indentifying the resource does not necessarily mean we can retrieve it. URI is a superset of URL and URN.
URL: URI that specify a common Internet protocol such as HTTP or FTP are also called URLs. URL is an informal term an is not used in technical specifications.
URN: A URN is an identifier the uniquely indentifies a resource but does not specify how to access that resource.
