Random Access Memory (RAM)

Random Access Memory (RAM) is a type of primary memory that resides in the CPU and temporarily stores data and instructions. The contents of a RAM cell before and after a power failure. RAM is volatile and hence loses its contents after a power failure. The word “random” in the term “random access memory” means that the computer can randomly access any memory cell, without accessing all cells in sequence.
