Hardware performs the computations, software is a set of instructions we use to tell the hardware what we want it to do.
Basically hardware is what carries out the work, and software is what we use, and what we program into it.
how does hardware work?
If the Q. is what is the HW-SW interface which enables us to use both of them as a system, i would say the instruction set.
The Instruction set is the HW-SW interface , instructions are "signals" for the hardware and at the same time appear as instructions to the programmer.This is the bridge between and us the machine.
When they work together, they create what is known as a computer. Hardware is just external drives, like flashdrives and external hard drives. Software is what is in the computer, like the motherboard. Together, they make a computer.
The whole purpose of hardware is to have something to run software on. Software is pretty useless without some hardware to run it. Think of the hardware as a chef, and the software as his recipes. What good would the chef be without his recipes? What good would his recipes be if there was no-one around to cook them?
Hardware is any physical component of a computer, Which needs instructions to know how it is expected to operate or use special features built into the hardware. These instructions come in the form of software. They tell a device what it is able to do and how it can do it.
music is a type of signl in form of discrete.
A DVD itself is hardware but it may contain software. You can touch hardware but not software.
It is the software which interacts with the hardware. But at the sametime the hardware also interact with the software by responding to it.
how do software and hardware interact
both a hardware and software
is a spreadsheet a hardware or software
Have to be hardware. How could you write software if there were no hardware to write it on?
The computer software tells the hardware what to do. Without the hardware, the software would not exist. Without the software, the hardware would be useless.
Software is a program that works on some form of computer hardware. For example, Microsoft Word is a piece of software.
A scanner is both hardware and software, the device itself is hardware (all devices are hardware) but the driver(a program) that runs it is software.
I'd say it would have to be hardware. You had to have hardware to write software on.
