How does Current Ability really work?

I just to really know how it works in the game. It is a number that shows how good a player is but is there an exact way of defining what a certain number of CA is worth?

For example, in my Tottenham save, Rafael VdV is 33 years old and has 127 CA. His CA has dropped about 40 points. But when you look in his attributes the only ones that dropped dramatically are the Physical attributes. His technical and mental attributes are still great. So does this mean that the Physical attributes are the ones that compose a big part of the CA?

Another example, in my same Tottenham save, a regen came up and has 75 CA. He has 13 dribbling, 13 crossing, 20 determination, 17 flair, 15 acceleration, 15 pace, 14 agility and good physical attributes. Now all those numbers for just 75 CA? How is this possible?
just as ju suggested in the first paragraph, diffrent attributes take diffrent chunks of the CA. So if you take a striker 20 finishing will take a bigger chunk out of the CA than say 20 tackling. Which attributes are "heavy" on the CA and which are "light" depend on position if I'm not wrong.
