Computer Memory

I have learned about a few types of memory. These include ROM and RAM

ROM stands for Read Only Memory which means if you turn off your computer the date inside isn’t lost as it has a long life battery inside your computer.

RAM stands for Random Access Memory which is made up memory chips. Every time you open a program the data it get loaded from the hard drive into the RAM this is because reading data from RAM is much easier and faster instead of reading data from the hard drive.
