What's the difference among pack, package, and bag in terms of packing? Please let me know what the differences are among pack, package, and bag in terms of packing, like a bag of potato chips, a package of frozen peas and a pack of cigarettes. Thank you !

An interesting question. A bag usually holds a lot of separate items loosely packed- a woman's hand bag, a bag of donuts etc. A package is usually something solid and tightly wrapped, or boxed.- frozen peas are usually a solid lump so perhaps that's why they are in a package. A pack can be something carried on you like a backpack filled with things you need. or it can be a tight group of the same things - like a pack of dogs or wolves. A pack of cigarettes fits both meanings.
