How to find the object size in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To find the object size in R, we can use object.size function. For example, if we have a data frame called df then the size of df can be found by using the command object.size(df). Similarly, if we have a vector say x then it’s size can be found using object.size(x) and for a matrix M it can be object.size(M).

Example1

Consider the below data frame −

x<-rnorm(20,31,1.2)
y<-rnorm(20,11,1.02)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
df

Output

      x         y
