    A kernel connects the application software to the hardware of a computer. It typically makes facilities available to application through inter-process communication mechanisms.

    A kernel is like the heart of an OS.It allocates Hardware resources to the Programs.For Eg:if your program asks needs a printer to print a document it requests a printer to the OS.that request is processed by kernel and the printer is allocated to the Program.

    Each kernel does this same job in its own way depending upon its design.

    The kernel is a program that constitutes the central core of a computer operating system. It has complete control over everything that occurs in the system.

    Hello,

    Friend a kernel can be said as a middle ware between your hardware and the software.

    The main task of the kernel is to connect the Operating system with the motherboard or the hardware.

    So the OS data is converted into the hardware language by the kernel.


    In short you can say that a kernel is a translator for the OS and the hardware.

    The kernel is the first part of the operating system to load into memory during booting (i.e., system startup), and it remains there for the entire duration of the computer session because its services are required continuously. Thus it is important for it to be as small as possible while still providing all the essential services needed by the other parts of the operating system and by the various application programs.

    HELLO DEAR,A kernel is a central component of an operating system. It acts as an interface between the user applications and the hardware. The sole aim of the kernel is to manage the communication between the software and the hardware CPU, disk memory etc. The main tasks of the kernel are:-:- Interrupt handling:- I/O communication:- File system:- Process management:- Device management:- Memory management:- Interrupt handlingTYPES OF KERNEL:- Two types of kernel:- MONOLITHIC.:- MICRO KERNEL.THANKS,
