The part of the CPU that performs arithmetic computations and logical operations.
Comprised of the Instruction cycle and the execution cycle, it determines how quickly a computer processes data.
Also called random access memory or RAM, it is like short-term memory. It stores data while the computer is running. When the computer is turned off or if there is a loss of power, any data in the main memory disappears. The computer can read from and write to this type of memory.
