# Java program to find second largest element in an array

In this java program, we are reading an integer array of N elements and finding second largest element among them. By Chandra Shekhar Last updated : December 23, 2023

## Problem statement

Given an array of N integers and we have to find its second largest element using Java program.

### Example

Input:
Enter number of elements: 4
Input elements: 45, 25, 69, 40

Output:
Second largest element in: 45

## Program to find second largest element from an array in java

import java.util.Scanner;

public class ExArraySecondLargest {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// intialise here.
int n, max;

// create object of scanner class.
Scanner Sc = new Scanner(System.in);

// enter total number of elements.
System.out.print("Enter total number of elements you wants : ");
n = Sc.nextInt();

// creating array object.
int a[] = new int[n];

// enter the elements here.
System.out.println("Enter all the elements:");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
a[i] = Sc.nextInt();
}
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
for (int j = i + 1; j < n; j++) {
if (a[i] > a[j]) {
max = a[i];
a[i] = a[j];
a[j] = max;
}
}
}
System.out.println("The Second Largest Elements in the Array is :" + a[n - 2]);
}
}

### Output

Enter total number of elements you wants : 4
Enter all the elements:
55
45
25
89
The Second Largest Elements in the Array is :55
