This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Some of the processes are bound to be plugins and extensions. In the wrench menu, choose Tools → Task Manager to view what processes are being used for.

Right now I have one tab open and yet six processes: One babysitter process, two for LastPass, one for GPU rendering, one for Flash, and one for the actual page I'm viewing.

You can get a somewhat more detailed view of what memory Chrome is using by visiting the URL about:memory (can't make a link to it with Markdown).
