RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of memory present on the motherboard of a device. It is also called central memory and acts as an intermediary between processor and memory (for example, internal memory or the microSD). This means that it is a volatile, random access memory that contains the data of the applications currently running, which will then be loaded into the CPU for execution. Being a random access memory, it means that the access to the memory occurs much more quickly because you go to act on the data in a timely manner, as opposed to what happens.
