• When Value type is explicitly converted into reference type is called as boxing.
• The reverse process is known as unboxing, when reference type is explicitly converted into value type.
• In boxing process, the Values of variable is stored in Stack is converted in an object reference is stored in heap.
• If the recipient reference type is equivalent to the unboxed type, then the value is copied to the heap.
• Unboxing called the vice versa process of boxing.
