Asset
In financial accounting , an ASSET is an economic resource. Anything tangible or intangible that can be owned or controlled to produce value and that is held by a company to produce positive economic value is an asset. Simply stated, assets represent value of ownership that can be converted into cash (although cash itself is also considered an asset). The balance sheet of a firm records the monetary value of the assets owned by that firm. It covers money and other valuables belonging to an individual or to a business . One can classify assets into two major asset classes: tangible assets and intangible assets . Tangible assets contain various subclasses, including current assets and fixed assets . Current assets include inventory , while fixed assets include such items as buildings and equipment . Intangible assets are nonphysical resources and rights that have a value to the firm because they give the firm some kind of advantage in the marketplace

Equity (finance)
In accounting , EQUITY (or OWNER\'S EQUITY) is the difference between the value of the assets and the value of the liabilities of something owed. It is governed by the following equation: Equity = Assets Liabilities {displaystyle {text{Equity}}={text{Assets}}-{text{Liabilities}}} For example, if someone owns a car worth $15,000 (an asset), but owes $5,000 on a loan against that car (a liability), the car represents $10,000 of equity. Equity can be negative if liabilities exceeds assets. SHAREHOLDERS\' EQUITY (or stockholders' equity, shareholders' funds, shareholders' capital or similar terms) represents the equity of a company as divided among shareholders of common or preferred stock . Negative shareholders' equity is often referred to as a shareholders' deficit. Alternatively, equity can also refer to the capital stock of a corporation . The value of the stock depends on the corporation's future economic prospects
