    Well, both forms that you have given contain a mistake. However, as far as I understand your question :) you want to know the difference, so Past Participle is one of the verb forms and the Past Simple is a tense. The first is used in various structues and tenses <the passive, causative get/have, perfect tenses etc.>, the second is used to describe a single, completed action in the past.
    Hope it's useful.
    Cheers!

    Default Re: Past Simple & Past Participle

    A) The Past Participle is used for all perfect forms of the verb:
    1 Present Perfect

    eg: I have taken

    2 Past Perfect

    eg: I had taken

    3 Future Perfect

    eg: I will have taken

    4 Conditional Perfect or the 3rd Conditional

    eg: I would have taken


    B) The Past Participle is used in the Passive with the verb 'To Be' in most aspects and tenses.

    NOTE:

    The Past Participle may also be used as an adjective.
