How to find memory taken by Oracle processes using top command

I wanted to know how to find the memory taken by Oracle processes using top command. The output of the top command is as follows as an example:

Mem: 16436072k total, 16215708k used, 220364k free, 395128k buffers
Swap: 25165816k total, 1168288k used, 23997528k free, 13366520k cached

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
27281 oraprod 15 0 6705m 1.3g 1.3g S 0.0 8.6 61:44.71 oracle
27383 oraprod 15 0 6702m 1.2g 1.2g S 0.0 7.7 2:22.75 oracle
5199 oraprod 16 0 6745m 1.1g 1.0g S 0.0 6.8 2:51.23 oracle

The different Oracle processes could be Oracle database, Oracle listener, Oracle enterprise manager etc.

I hope, my question is clear as to how to find the memory taken by a process using top command.

Please revert with the reply to my query.

Regards
