Bitrate/Resolution query

If I had two files, both same bitrate, let's say 25Mbps.

One file has a resolution of 1080p, the other 4K.

1.) If I played both files on a 1080p or 4K monitor, would both files look the same?

2.) Is bitrate the only factor of image quality, if not, how does resolution factor into the debate when both files have the same bitrate?

1. No, they would not.

2. The resolutions relate to the pixels. Bit rate relates to the data to feed the image.
If the image is still, you will definitely be able to notice the difference between 1080p and 4k. In high motion situations, you might notice that the 4k video has pixelation compared to the 1080p video since 4k needs a higher bit rate to feed that resolution.

1. Would the 4K video look better on both the 1080p and 4K monitor by a noticeable amount?

2. But if you have, say a 100Mbps video in both 4K and 1080p resolutions, would they still be different?

1. Assuming there's enough bitrate for the 4K video, yes.

2. Yes they would still be different. 4k has higher pixel density

yes 4K content will always look better... depending on the example, at least.
