some one could you please explain about how 8 bit accumulator work in real time

The accumulator or the A register is an 8-bit register, which is an integral part of Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU) of an 8085 microprocessor. During any computation process, intermediate results are generated which is later required for ongoing computation. Main memory can be used for storing the intermediate results which only makes the computation slower. To avoid this, the Accumulator was designed in such a way that it is significantly close to the ALU unit. This makes the Accumulator faster than the main memory. In short, an accumulator is a faster 8-bit temporary register for storing intermediate values.
