Q:

Computer storage units smallest to largest?

The smallest unit of data storage in a computer is called Bit (Binary Digit). Half a byte (four bits) is called a Nibble.

1 bit (binary digit) = the value of 0 or 1

8 bits = 1 byte

1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte

1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte

1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte

1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

1024 terabytes = 1 petabyte

Hence, Computer storage units smallest to largest i.e, in ascending order is

1 bit  <  1 byte  <  1 KB  <  1 MB  <  1 GB  <  1TB  <  1 PB.

Q:

Is DRAM Volatile or Nonvolatile?

DRAM is a Volatile random-access memory (VRAM).

Volatile random-access memory (VRAM) is random-access memory that retains its information when power is turned on.

Examples of volatile memory are primary storage (typically dynamic RAM, DRAM), and fast CPU cache memory (typically static RAM, SRAM, which is fast but energy-consuming and offer lower memory capacity per area unit than DRAM).

Non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM) is random-access memory that retains its information when power is turned off.

Examples of non-volatile memory are flash memory (used as secondary memory) and ROM, PROM, EPROM and EEPROM memory (used for storing firmware such as BIOS).
