In computers, a character or symbol designating a location where information is stored.
In a computer memory, a number indicating a specific location. At each address, a single piece of data can be stored. For microcomputers, this normally amounts to one byte (enough to represent a single character, such as a letter or digit).
The maximum capacity of a computer memory depends on how many memory addresses it can have. This is normally measured in units of 1,024 bytes (known as kilobytes, or K).
