Python While Loop

In this tutorial, we will learn about while loop in Python. We will cover the basics of iterative execution using while loops.

What is a While Loop

A while loop is a control flow statement that allows code to be executed repeatedly based on a given Boolean condition. The loop runs as long as the condition evaluates to true.


The syntax for the while loop in Python is:

while condition:
    # Code block to be executed

The while loop evaluates the condition before executing the loop's body. If the condition is true, the code block inside the loop is executed. This process repeats until the condition becomes false.

Printing Numbers from 1 to 5

  1. Declare a variable i and initialize it to 1.
  2. Use a while loop to print numbers from 1 to 5.

Python Program

i = 1
while i <= 5:
    i += 1



Calculating the Sum of First N Natural Numbers

  1. Declare variables n and sum.
  2. Assign a value to n.
  3. Initialize sum to 0.
  4. Use a while loop to calculate the sum of the first n natural numbers.
  5. Print the sum.

Python Program

n = 10
sum = 0
i = 1
while i <= n:
    sum += i
    i += 1
print(f'Sum of first {n} natural numbers is {sum}')


Sum of first 10 natural numbers is 55

Reversing a Number

  1. Declare variables num and rev.
  2. Assign a value to num.
  3. Initialize rev to 0.
  4. Use a while loop to reverse the digits of num.
  5. Print the reversed number.

Python Program

num = 12345
rev = 0
while num != 0:
    digit = num % 10
    rev = rev * 10 + digit
    num = num // 10
print(f'Reversed number is {rev}')


Reversed number is 54321
