Hello,

On wikipedia.org I noticed this:
"Very often, when referring to the word size of a modern computer, one is also describing the size of address space on that computer. For instance, a computer said to be "32-bit" also usually allows 32-bit memory addresses; a byte-addressable 32-bit computer can address 2 to the power of 32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes of memory, or 4 gibibytes (GiB). "
"In modern byte-addressable computers, each address identifies a single byte of storage; data too large to be stored in a single byte may reside in multiple bytes occupying a sequence of consecutive addresses. "

I know that a 32 bit integer is capable of storing 4,294,967,296 distinct values (256x256x256x256). That's pretty straight forward. Now, why is there a limitation of 4,294,967,296 bytes of memory for a 32 bit computer, I don't understand.

Please assist. Thank you.
