Empty process - is an application which user is frequently visiting and closing. (Which resides in memory even after killing).
To launch frequently visited app fastly, even after destroying that app, it will be still in memory so that loading time will be reduced and user feels more comfortable. That is called as empty process.
its priority is 5 (Empty_Process). this is the last and least priority of an application or a process.
When android device goes out of memory, to reclaim some memory android will start killing all the processes starting with least priority process. Empty process is the most susceptible process to be killed in case of low memory.
