Queue vs. Stack: Know the Difference

Shumaila Saeed
By Shumaila Saeed || Updated on December 25, 2023
A queue is a data structure where elements are processed in a first-in-first-out (FIFO) order, while a stack processes elements in a last-in-first-out (LIFO) order.
Queue vs. Stack

Key Differences

A queue organizes elements in a sequential order, adhering to FIFO, meaning the first element added is the first one removed. A stack, however, operates on a LIFO basis, where the last element added is the first one removed.

In a queue, elements are added at one end, called the rear, and removed from the other end, known as the front. In contrast, in a stack, both addition (push) and removal (pop) of elements occur at the same end, referred to as the top.

Queues are used in scenarios where order needs to be preserved, such as in printer tasks or customer service lines. Stacks are utilized in situations like undo mechanisms in software or for backtracking algorithms.

Implementing a queue can be done using arrays or linked lists, ensuring elements maintain their order of insertion. Stacks are also implemented using arrays or linked lists, but order is not preserved in the same way.
