    Hi

    Ram is used as the workspace for ongoing processes and recent processes. It fills up and is not normally emptied or partially emptied by Android until more space is needed by the currently used app. Clearing ram empties it. It is not normally necessary. It's like completely clearing a physical desk of all ongoing projects.

    A good rule of thumb (shamelessly copied from someone's signature) is that empty ram is wasted ram.
