    If you download the datasheets for 8, 16, and 32 bit controllers and read those datasheets, you will get the answer to your question.

    Trying not to be snarky for once:

    The 8, 16 or 32 bit designation of a microcontroller refers to the largest size of data can be processed by a single instruction. I.e. an 8 bit processor can add two 32-bit numbers, but it will likely take 4 or more instructions. A 32-bit processor can do it with one instruction.
