If class A and class B contain the same function but that function in class A is static, will an array of class A instance occupies less memory than an array of class B instance with the same number of element? class A { static int dosomething() { /* Do Something */ return 0; } }; class B { int dosomething() { /* Do Something */ return 0; } };

No, functions aren't stored per instance, as that would take a ridiculous amount of memory. Instead, functions are just stored once, so A and B won't differ in size. Try sizeof(A) and sizeof(B).
