What does radial and axial load capacity mean?

3d-radial-load-animation radial-load-animation
The radial force is the force acting perpendicular to the shaft axis. Radial ball bearings optimally absorb forces acting perpendicular to the shaft axis.
3d-axial-load-animation axial-load-animation
The axial force acts in the direction of the axis, meaning along the axis, of a body. Optimally, axial ball bearings absorb large forces that act in the direction of the shaft axis.
