A number that is assigned to each byte
in a computer��s memory
that the CPU
uses to track where data and instructions are stored in RAM
. Each byte is assigned a memory address whether or not it is being used to store data. The computer��s CPU uses the address bus
to communicate which memory address it wants to access, and the memory controller reads the address and then puts the data stored in that memory address back onto the address bus for the CPU to use.
