what exactly is project ,product and process
If you do a search on these topics in the upper right-hand corner of this screen you will get a lot of info. But, basically:
"Project" is a managed series of events leading from the concept phase to the delivery phase of a product and usually takes no more than 18 months. Normally funding for this operation is of the Capital type.
"Product"is something which is distributed by a manufacture for profit or gain, the maintenance is usually funded from the Expense fund.
"Process"is a series of predetermined events or actions put in place to help guarantee repeatability of some or all phases of the SDLC or manufacturing effort. (A crude example is that of getting ready for work in the morning, I have found that the best practice for me is to shower, comb my hair, use deodorant, shave, and then brush. This sequence works best for me and is a process.)
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

project(application)->it is given by a customer with his requirements and expectations
product->this is developed by a company depending on the market requirements
process->this is a method followed in both project and product.the way to achieve customer requirement or market requirement.
I think you are confusing the issue and I suggest you closely look at what Rich has explained. Let me translate the information into your context:
Project = the organization of all work efforts to create a product that may have been contracted by a customer, or that may be funded internally for private use or for commercial sales. There should be a project plan that outlines when various work efforts must be performed to produce results.
Product = the objective of a project, as well as the tangible results that a customer is willing to pay for. If you think of software application that is normally considered a product in context of a development initiative.
Process = a method followed in a project that has the greatest likelihood of producing the product to specifications, on time, and within budget. It is the effectiveness of that process that makes a company more competitive. It is the adherence to that process that makes a company eligible for a quality standards rating like ISO or CMM.
I like your definitions very precise and accurate - I will be borrowing these
