    Could - Will

    I'm confused with could and will. Can u tell me the differrence of meaning between could and will in the sentence :
    Will you call me at 8 PM? I have to catch an early train

    and

    Could you call me at 8 PM ? I have to catch an early train

    Thanks

    In either case, you're asking someone to call you at 8pm.

    Will you... is stronger than Could you... Will you... may indicate an order, while Could you... cannot.
