Are federalism and the Constitution the same?

So i have to write an essay of how the Constitution promotes the public good. Now in my American Government book there is a section that lists how 'federalism' promotes the public good. Would it be the same thing as the Constitution promoting the public good?

    No. Federalism is a concept. The Constitution is a specific document.
