I always thought sharps were notes , and flats was when you combine a sharp note as the root note to form a chord.
I'm not really sure of piano, but I know that on guitar sharp notes are referred to as #, and Flat notes are only used when you see a sharp root note in a chord. b
I read in a book, that a sharp note only becomes a flatted note when in a chord with other notes, it seems logical, but then i also heard that there's a notable pitch difference between a sharp and a flat...
Basically a sharp note may be a semi-tone of half step, but in between that a flat is also a note in itself
