Best Answer

Answer:- The Cache memory is placed between the CPU and the main memory. It is a fast speed memory and is expensive and faster than the main memory.

Cache memory is used to store the frequently accessed data of main memory. The instructions that are frequently used by the CPU are stored in the cache memory. It is used to reduce the average access time for address, instructions or data, which are normally stored in the main memory. Cache memory increases the operating speed of the system. But is much costlier than main memory. From economic considerations, the capacity of the cache memory is much less as compared to main memory..
