Define memory alignment??, C/C++ Programming

Primarily the term alignment refers the tendency of an address pointer value to be a multiple of some power of two. Thus a pointer with two byte alignment contains a zero in the least signi_cant bit. And a pointer along with four byte alignment contains a zero in both the two least signi_cant bits. And so forth. More alignment refers a longer sequence of zero bits in lowest bits of a pointer.
