Array

Array are used to represents the group of elements into a single unit or consecutive memory location. Each and every element what we are entering into the array is going to be stored in the array with the unique index starting from zero. Through the indexes we can store the data or elements into the array or we can get the elements from the array.
To declare an array in javascript we need new keyword. To create an array you use new Array(n) where n was the number of slots in the array or new Array() omitting the size of an array.
Note: Whenever we create any array in javaScript without specifying the size then it well create array object with the zero size.

Syntax

myarray = new array(5);
