Best Answer

The maximum value represented in a 32-bit unsigned word is 232-1 = 4,294,967,295, so you can represent all numbers with 9 decimal places and some numbers with 10 decimal places in 32-bits. log(232-1) = 9.632959861 is the true answer.

What is the basic addressable unit of memory?

Most modern architectures address memory down to the 8-bit byte, however some architectures (often supercomputers) only address to the memory word which may be 64 bits or more long. Early computer architectures had various sizes of addressable memory unit: individual bit, decimal digit, 10-digit signed decimal word, 12-digit/character decimal word, 5-bit character, 6-bit character, 12-bit word, 9-bit quarterword, 18-bit halfword, 36-bit word, 20-bit halfword, 40-bit word, 60-bit word, etc.
