"Composition" - the different parts which something is made of. What is the chemical composition of sodium chloride? - Sodium and chlorine. What is the chemical composition of hydrochloric acid? - Hydrogen and chlorine. "Chemical component" is only one part of the chemical composition. So hydrogen is the first component and chlorine is the second component of hydrochloric acid.
