In this tutorial you will learn about the Difference Between Stack and Array Data structure and its application with practical example.
Difference Between Stack and Array Data structure
What Is Stack Data Structure?
It is a kind of special linear data structure in which the item which is added in the last is removed from the very first and the item is to be added first is removed from the list in the last position; it works on the process of LIFO (last in first out). In stack there is only one end for insertion of date item and that is called top end, it is a kind of abstract data type where items and elements are stored in a limited size and it is mainly used in building of programming languages.
What Is Array In Data Structure?
Array is that kind of data structure in which many data items can be stored of similar data types in a single variable, in this all the data items that are stored is denoted by a single name but they all have the different index with the help of that this array can access in all data items stored in it. Arrays are of three types, (1) One Dimensional Array, (2) Two Dimensional Array, (3) Multi Dimensional Array.
Stack Vs Array In Data Structure
|Stack follows LIFO (Last in first out) process.||Array has its own ordered collection of data types.|
|Insertion and deletion of data items and element occurs only from one (top) end.||Array’s contiguous memory location stores elements in it.|
|Due to one open end only single pointer is used to denote stack.||Due to continuous and fix memory location insertion and deletion operations takes more time|
|The implementation process is very easy.||Memory can be allocated in compile time and is also known as static memory allocation.|
|Operation like push and pop to be performed in stack||It can be single dimensional, two dimensional or multi-dimensional.|
|Stacks have nothing to perform||An array size can justified at the time of declaration.|
