Answers:


Swap space on a hard disk is used as the virtual memory.

When your system needs more memory, inactive memory pages are written to the disk. It is a substitute of physical memory (RAM).

Whenever your computer runs short of physical memory it uses (swap) virtual memory and stores information in memory on disk.
