Hi Maicle, How are you! In the field of computer, the kernel is the basic and major component of the operating system of computer; it is a linkage between the actual or basic data and the applications, so we can complete the processing at the level of hardware.  Kernel has many important responsibilities to do which include management of the system and its resources, the relation between the components of software and hardware. It can also provide the abstraction layer at lowest level.

There are different types of kernel with different implantation and designs and performs different functions of Operating system…

Hope this will be helpful and enough information for you.

Kernel memory is also one of the types of memory inside the computers. Operating system uses this kernel memory. It is secure and normal applications or software cannot access it. To transfer kernel towards the disk memory there is another memory named virtual memory is used. So in every computer or the operating system there is always a presence of kernel memory and it occupy space in physical memory most of the time and it never ignored or deleted. This memory named kernel also plays a very important role in managing of the overall memory and by this image which you see below is the whole scenario in a diagram which shows how it manage the memory.
