    Volatile memory is that memory whose contents are retained only when the power is available Since RAM is used when the processor is working and is a temporary storage, i think it should be volatile memory

    It is most definitely volatile memory because it has to be constantly powered and refreshed to keep its contents. Non volatile memory will retain its data when the power is turned off (hard drives, thumb drives, and memory cards are non volatile) non volatile is also slower than volatile and more costly to make.
