An operating system is a software on which a computer runs. Without an operating system, a system would not be able to function, just like a body with no life. It also gives the chance to make settings to the computer to your suitable configuration.

However, the kernel is the core part of the operating system that makes it function without failure. It helps to translate the commands from the operating system to meaningful information on the computer.

The kernel is located kind of far behind much software; this makes it be less reckoned with. The operating system contains several other software that enables a user to operate his personal computer. The software that is in the operating system includes the video media player, word editor, browser such as internet explorer, and many more. Kernel happens to be that core part of the operating system that helps interact with the hardware.
