how can you determine how much RAM a piece of software occupies as it is executing?  

The most general way of finding out how much memory an application is using is by clicking the apple in the upper left hand corner while in the finder.  Select 'About this computer' and a dialog will display all the applications currently running and the memory they are using.

I don't know anything about Mac Turing.  3 ways to start an application would be to 1)select the application with a mouse click and press 'Apple - O' on the keyboard.
2) Double clicking the application from the finder.
3) Single clicking the application in Launcher (a short cut to the application is usually found in the launcher program -- inside the control panel).

I hope this helps.

For your info,
when you quit an application and you then select 'About this computer' and you notice that you didn't get some or all of your memory back after quitting the application, you know that the app has errors in it called 'memory leaks'.  The only way to get your memory back is to restart your computer.  This problem is fairly common in applications.
