Radicals were originally conceived as a way of searching large paper (radical indexed) dictionaries. They don't, as is often believed, always convey the core meaning of the kanji (no matter how hard you try). Although the radicals for most kanji are universally agreed, some difficult (i.e. outside joyo) kanji have more than one accepted radical depending on which dictionary you use.
Particles are a visual guide to memorisation and cannot always be relied upon to convey meaning. Also known as elements, components or parts. Unlike radicals, there is no universally agreed list; different resources use different breakdowns and as such should be treated as a visual guide only. As a rule of thumb, the less there are, the more likely their meanings will fit with the main answer.
