Sure sounds like homework.
Perhaps the folowing will help some:

1) What is the output of a C compile/link and what does Java produce?

2) What is passed to 'new' and what is passed to 'malloc'?

C produces a executable for the operating system, whereas Java produces a executable for the Java Virtual Machine(JVM).It won't matter whether the JVM is installed on windows or unix or Linux, the compiled code will work if the JVM is installed, whereas in C you have to recompile the code to work for the OS.

Regarding new and malloc, new creates the selected object and pass the pointer to the variable, whereas malloc assigns a memory space of any supplied length, and passes a void pointer to the memory to the variable. free and delete will work with there counterparts.
