Ping Broadcast ip address of your computer

I would like to know when you ping IP address of the broadcast on your computer, then run arp -a command, what you would get as information.
for instance, my ip adddress is 10.10.10.10, if I ping 10.10.10.255, then run arp-a, I will get a list of IP addresses with Mac addresses.
I would like to know what the information (list of IP addresses with Mac addresses) represents.

Thanks
