Can any natives out there explain/clarify 🤨 the difference between 'esclarecimento' and 'explicação' (this is not an ironic joke).

Clarification consists of providing more information on a given subject, to resolve or resolve any doubts, comments, on the subject in question. Explanation consists of presenting general or detailed information on a subject. The difference between clarification and explanation is that when you explain something, you present information about the chosen subject, and doubts arise about the subject, you clarify it, it gives you the possibility of delving into the subject in order to resolve or discuss it, that is, , in the explanation you inform, in the clarification you enter the subject presenting more information.
