# What is Component: Definition and 567 Discussions

Component-based software engineering (CBSE), also called components-based development (CBD), is a branch of software engineering that emphasizes the separation of concerns with respect to the wide-ranging functionality available throughout a given software system. It is a reuse-based approach to defining, implementing and composing loosely coupled independent components into systems. This practice aims to bring about an equally wide-ranging degree of benefits in both the short-term and the long-term for the software itself and for organizations that sponsor such software.
Software engineering practitioners regard components as part of the starting platform for service-orientation. Components play this role, for example, in web services, and more recently, in service-oriented architectures (SOA), whereby a component is converted by the web service into a service and subsequently inherits further characteristics beyond that of an ordinary component.
Components can produce or consume events and can be used for event-driven architectures (EDA).

1. ### Finding the x component of position vector

I first calculated the time using y = (viy)(t) + 0.5gt^2 where y is the vertical displacement which is 0 for the ball landing back on the ground, viy is the initial vertical velocity ie 16.55m/s and g = -9.8m/s}^2. I get 2 values for t, t=0 and t= 3.377s. Then using the equation x = (vix)(t) =...
2. ### Frames of Reference: Using tie-downs to hold a load on a flatbed truck

I calculated the net force. I got 6500. I determined this is bigger than the force of static friction so the force of friction acting on the object must be kinetic. From there I got kinda lost. I know for the component to not slip Fnetx = 0 and Fnety = 0. But I'm not sure what to do from there...
