    I would like to know the difference between "1"and "2".
    1. I'm upset when you come home late.
    2. I'm angry when you come home late.

    Well, upset means agitated, with elements of concern and anger mixed in.

    So I'd say #1 expresses more that they were also concerned or anxious because of the person being late, while #2 only expresses their resentment/anger at the persons lateness.
