How to determine Computer Processor Bit or whether Processor is 32-bit or 64-bit

Processor may be of 32-bit Instruction set and of 64-Bit instruction set.
Softwares may be made based on this Bits i.e Softwares / Operating System may be compaitable either for 64 or 32Bit Processor.
We can only run softwares based the Operating System's Bit, i.e only 32-Bit software on a 32-Bit Operating System.

Actually the 32-Bit or 64 Bits refers to the Instruction Set in a Processor.
On a 64-bit Processor - We can install both 32-Bit as Well as 64-Bit Operating System, whereas in the case of a 32-Bit Processor we can only install a 32-Bit operating System.
