# Array in data structure

An array is defined as a set finite of homogenous element or data items .

it means an array can contain one type of data only either all integer , all floating point numbers or all characters.

## Properties of array

It has three array

- Finite
- Order
- Homogenous

**Finite**

An array is finite because it contains only limited number of elements.

**Order**

All the elements are stored one by one , in contiguous location of computer memory in a linear order and fashion

**Homogenous **

All the elements of an array are of same data types only and hence it is termed as collection of homogenous
