Let’s see the example with Lightning Component or Aura component. Here we have one component, inside the component we have one div. it showing case subject in both desktop and mobile view.

Component file to show the case Subject 

<aura:component >
    <aura:attribute name="case" type="Case" description="Case subject to display" />

    <div class="sample-class">
        <label>Subject: </label>
        <ui:outputText aura:id="subject" value="{!}"/>

CSS file for component

.THIS .sample-class{
    width: 45%;
    float: left;

Now we are going to apply 100% with for mobile view using media query.

@media all and (max-width:767px) {
  .THIS .sample-class{
        width: 100%; 
        float: left;
