I am trying to find out the applications of binomial distribution in computer science and other field. I am unable to find it. Can someone guide me regarding this ? Thanks in advance.

You can't think of anything like that in computers? Cache misses, hash collisions, etc. You should be able to find dozens.

L1,L2,L3. The computer looks for frequently accessed data first in L1, then L2 and lastly L3. Can u please explain more about how binomial distribution can be used in cache misses. ?
