In variance to software

In variance to software, hardware is a physical object. Hardware and software are interrelated, without software, the hardware of a computer would have no function. Though, without the creation of hardware to achieve tasks controlled by software via the central processing unit, software would be inoperable. Hardware is limited to explicitly designed tasks that are, taken independently, very simple. Software uses algorithms (problem solutions) that permit the computer to complete much more complex tasks.
Software can do many tasks, as opposed to hardware which can only achieve mechanical tasks that they are intended for. Software offers the means for accomplishing many diverse tasks with the same basic hardware. For a computer to create useful output, its hardware & software must work hand in hand. Nothing useful can be done with the computer hardware on its own and software can’t be operated without supporting hardware. So, there is a close connection between software ; hardware and in their processing and storage capacity one can’t do without the other.
