Default 2 Network Segments on 1 Switch

I have a question for anyone who's a networking expert.

How come you can use 1 switch for 2 network segments? Is it because of the protocol used? Is it by design? Also, what if both segments have their own DHCP server? How would the switch handle the assignment of DHCP address allocation per segment?

Thanks.
