# Java program to find the position of MSB bit of an integer number

Given/input a number, we have to find the position of MSB bit of the given number.
Submitted by Nidhi, on March 11, 2022

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read an integer number from the user. Then we will find the Most Significant Bit (MSB) of the input number and print the result.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to find the position of the MSB bit of an integer number is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```// Java program to find the position of MSB bit
// of an integer number

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner SC = new Scanner(System.in);

int num = 0;
int pos = 0;

System.out.printf("Enter Number: ");
num = SC.nextInt();

while (num > 0) {
pos++;
num = num >> 1;
}
System.out.printf("Position of MSB bit is: %d\n", pos - 1);
}
}
```

Output:

```Enter Number: 14
Position of MSB bit is: 3
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we imported the java.util.Scanner package to read the variable's value from the user. And, created a public class Main. It contains a static method main().

The main() method is an entry point for the program. Here, we read an integer number from the user and found the MSB of a given number using the bitwise right shift operator and printed the result.
