How to find memory occupied using top command

I wanted to know of how to find memory occupied by a process using top command. I checked in help using man command and it says the syntax should be like,


top –pN1


where N1 is the process id, PID.


But when I gave this command using a particular PID, there was no relevant output. Also, please let me know of some other method of finding memory occupied by a process other than the top command.

I hope, my question is clear.

Please revert with the reply to my query.
