    An entity whose existence depends on the existence of another entity is called a weak (or dependent) entity.
    For eg: the dependent of an employee is a weak entity, whose existence depends on the entity employee.

    An entity is an object that exists and is distinguishable from other objects. For instance, John Harris with S.I.N. 890-12-3456 is an entity, as he can be uniquely identified as one particular person in the universe.
