# Write an algorithm to find smallest element in an Array. - Computer Science 1

Write an algorithm to find smallest element in an Array.

#### Solution

1) Initialize both first and second smallest as INT_MAX
first = second = INT_MAX
2) Loop through all the elements.
a) If the current element is smaller than first, then update first
and second.
b) Else if the current element is smaller than second then update
second
