FDBSs can be categorized as loosely coupled or tightly coupled based on who manages the federation and how the com- ponents are integrated. interoperable database system ( loosely ) An FDBS is loosely coupled if it is the user's responsibility to create and maintain the federation and there is no control enforced by the feder- ated system and its administrators. A federation is tightly coupled if the federation and its adminis- trator(s) have the responsibility for creat- ing and maintaining the federation and actively control the access to component DBSs. A loosely coupled FDBS always supports multiple federated schemas. A tightly coupled FDBS may have one or more federated schemas. A tightly coupled FDBS is said to have single federation if it allows the creation and management of only one federated schema. A tightly coupled FDBS is said to have multiple federations if it allows the creation and management of multiple federated schemas

Explain in newton's second law Why a hunter always presses the butt of a rifle tightly against his shoulder before firing?

Newton's second law states that the force of an object is equal to its mass times its acceleration. Therefore, when a hunter presses the butt of a rifle tightly against his shoulder before firing, the force of the gun is directed away from the shooter as the rifle accelerates. This reaction force pushes back on the shooter, helping absorb the recoil and allowing for better accuracy and stability. Additionally, by pressing the butt of the rifle firmly against the shoulder, the shooter can better control the direction of the gun and thus the direction of the bullet.
