This is a java program to compare Binary Search and Linear Search algorithms. Following class provides the time required to search an element for both the algorithms

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Compare Binary and Sequential Search. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
