Answers:

The address resolution protocol (ARP) is used to associate the 32 bit IP address with the 48 bit physical address, used by a host or a router to find the physical address of another host on its network by sending a ARP query packet that includes the IP address of the receiver.
The reverse address resolution protocol (RARP) allows a host to discover its Internet address when it knows only its physical address



ARP protocol is used to IP Adress to MAC adress. MAC is a phyical adress of the of the lan card

RARP protocols is changed to MAC adress to IP adress

ARP is used to determine the physical address(MAC Address) of the device only when its ip address is known. ARP is also used to translate the IP address to Ethernet MAC address. Each device has a physical address imprinted on the Network Interface Card(NIC).ARP used to associate an IP address with the phycial address.

RARP is used to determine the IP address of the host only when the physical address (MAC Address) is known. It's useful when the computer is connected to the network for the first time.

The simplest way to understand the ARP and RARP is.

when PC sends the data to another host, the ARP help it for making Physical address. and RARP is reversed form it.

Eg. ARP = IP to MAC
RARP = MAC to IP
