In this post, we will learn how to find the length of a given linked list in Java.

## How to Find the Length of a Linked List

You have given a singly linked list, write a Java program to count the number of elements or length of the linked list.

**Example 1:**

LinkedList: 1->2->3->4->5

Output: 5

**Example 2:**

LinkedList: 2->4->6->7->5->1->0

Output: 7

### Approach 1

Traverse the linked list until you reached the null node.

**Java Program: **

/* class Node{ int data; Node next; Node(int a){ data = a; next = null; } }*/ class Solution { public static int getCount(Node head) { int count = 0; Node curr = head; while (curr != null) { count++; curr = curr.next; } return count; } }
