Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is one of the major protocol in the TCP/IP suit and the purpose of Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is to resolve an IPv4 address (32 bit Logical Address) to the physical address (48 bit MAC Address).

Network Applications at the Application Layer use IPv4 Address to communicate with another device.

The ARP cache is checked first before sending an ARP Request frame.

The MAC address is how machines on a subnet communicate.

When machine A sends packets to another machine on its subnet, it sends it using the MAC address.
