Difference between test case and test scenario

Test case is a condition which is executed for expected output with predefined set of steps with known inputs. Generally a test case have

1) Precondition
2) Steps to execute
3) Input data
4) Expected output
5) Status (Pass/Fail)

Test Scenario is set of test cases. What it means, If you have to withdraw money from an ATM machine, then it is a scenario. But to withdraw money, you need to execute many test cases, needs to provide many inputs and you get many outputs and finally your money with receipt of transaction.

Any query, please comment.
