It takes same time to reach any address of the memory whether it is in the beginning or in the last. It is also called read/write memory. The storage of data and
instructions inside the primary storage is temporary. It disappears from RAM as soon as the power to the computer is switched off. The memory, which loose its contents on failure of power supply, are known as volatile memories. So now we can say that RAM is volatile memory.
