sw $rs, imm($rx) (store word)

sw $rs, imm($rx) (store word)

Hi to you all...!
I am new to assembly, and I have a small problem with sw(store)
I can't figure how is the proper use of this instruction. I want to store the integer I've read to an array of integers.
My code follows, I get an 'Exception 7 [Bad data address] occured and ignored' in sw $19, 16($10) # STORES
How should I declare sw(at the end of the code)???

thank you in advance!


         # register $7 : .,.,.,.,
        # register $16: Array Start Address
        # register $17: i
        # register $18: j
        # register $19: tmp
        # register $20: tmp2
        # register $26: 8, The number of the values
        # register $27: 1
        # register $28: x

    .align 2
    Array1: .space 32 #Array1 can store 8 integers(each 4 bytes)

str_n:      .asciiz "Dwse enan akeraio!"
str_ln:     .asciiz "\n"
str_sp:     .asciiz " "
str_hyphen: .asciiz "---------------------"

    .text           # program memory:
        .globl main             # label "main" must be global;
                                # default trap.handler calls main.
        .globl label_a          #
    .globl label_b        #

    addi $26, $0, 8        # initialize the number of values inserting
    la $15, Array1        # pseudo-instruction: starting address of array

    add $17, $0, $0        # initialize i=0

               # (1) PRINT A PROMPT
    addi    $2, $0, 4        # system call code for print_string
        la      $4, str_n        # pseudo-instruction: address of string
        syscall                  # print the str_n string
               # (2) READ n
    addi    $2, $0, 5        # system call code for read int
        syscall                  # Read a line containing an integer
        add     $19, $2, $0     # copy returned int from $2 to tmp($19)

               # (3)     print a  line
    add    $2, $0, 4
    la    $4, str_ln

               # (4) PRINT n
    addi    $2, $0, 1
    add    $4, $0, $19
               # (5) STORE INTEGER INTO ARRAY
    sw    $19, 16($10)      # STORES
    addi    $16, $16, 4     #move 4 bytes...
