Difference between Segment & Business Area

Hi All,

Could any one please help me in explaining what the difference between Segment & Business Area? And what does it mean by “We can create financial statements at any time for the Segment dimension. For this, you need to set up a zero balance setting for the Segment characteristic” can any one could please help me on this.
