Difference between Cytosol and Cytoplasm?

Based on what I have read and researched,

Cytosol: Fluid inside cell
Cytoplasm: a part of cytosol, not held in organisms but are held in the entire cell membrane.

I think I get a grasp of what it is, but I still want a distinct characteristic among these two.
Can these be in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

Cytoplasm is the entire contents of the cell, including the organelles and the cytosol while Cytosol refers to the liquid portion of the cytoplasm, excluding the organelles.
Cytosol serves as a medium for metabolic reactions, transport of molecules, and cellular signaling. Many metabolic pathways, such as glycolysis, take place in the cytosol.
