Basically "Hardware" is the parts of a computer you can touch.
"Software" is made up of the operating system that runs the hardware and the application programs that run on the computer.
In-between is "Firmware" which is the very specialized code that makes the various hardware components function in a specific way.

Hardware basically refers to the electronic components. I.e., Integrated Circuits (ICs), capacitors, resistors, transistors, etc.,. But, when talking about computers it mainly refers to the circuit boards housing all of the required electronic components. Mainly the Integrated Circuits (ICs) which are usually referred to as Chips. The ICs contain millions and millions of interconnected transistors. Normally, when a component goes bad, the whole circuit board gets replaced. Since it is easier and more cost effective than trying to identify the individual electronic component that failed.

Hardware is the parts/components of a computer you can see and touch (e.g. the actual laptop/computer - screens & accessories, the modem/router used to connect to the internet.) In business settings hardware is generally stuff like servers, databases, switches, containers, racks, cables, connectors, and wires.
