Informatics Practices Class 11 Chapter 1 : Computer System

 Informatics Practices Class 11 Chapter 1 

A computing device, also referred as computer processes the input data as per given instructions
to generate desired output.

Computer processes data to generate information whose further analysis and interpretation yields
knowledge.

Computer system has four physical components viz. i) CPU ii) Primary memory iii) Input device and
iv) Output device. They are referred to as hardware of computer.

Computer system has two types of primary memories viz. i) RAM the volatile memory and ii)
ROM the non-volatile memory.

Software is a set of instructions written to achieve the desired task and are mainly categorised as
system software, programming tools and application software.

Hardware of a computer cannot function on its own.  It needs software to be operational or functional.

Operating system is an interface between the user and the computer and supervises the working of
computer system i.e. it monitors and controls the hardware and software of the computer system.
