I have a page size (in words) of 512 (2^9), and a word size (in bits) of 16.

Each Virtual Address (p, i) occupies 1 word.

The v.a. (p, i) = 2^16
(16 - 9) = 7

The size of the page table is (2^7).
The size of Virtual Memory (in words) would be (2^16)

Is this correct.  If not, I'm looking more for guidance than an answer.

Thanks,
-S.W.
