Contiguous Memory Lecture by Mrs. Deepika Shrivastava.

Contiguous memory believes in storing data in continuous locations. It is the largest chuck of available memory that is not fragmented. When a process needs to execute, memory is requested by the process. The size of the process is compared with the amount of contiguous main memory available to execute the process. If sufficient contiguous memory is found, the process is allocated memory to start its execution. Otherwise, it is added to a queue of waiting processes until sufficient free contiguous memory is available.
