JavaScript Math.clz32() is an inbuilt method in JavaScript that stands for “Count Leading Zeroes 32”. This method is used for getting the number of leading zero bits present in the 32-bit representation of a number.

Syntax: 

Math.clz32(p)

Parameters: this method accepts a single parameter p, which is a number for which the number of leading zero bits present in its 32-bit representation is going to find out.

Returns: It returns the number of leading zero bits present in a 32-bit representation of the number. 

Examples:  

Input  : Math.clz32(10)
Output : 28

Explanation: Here the number 10 can be represented in 32-bit as shown below- 

00000000000000000000000000001010

From the above representation, we see that there is a total of 28 zero bits which are leading 1010 i.e., 4 bits of decimal number 10. That is why here output becomes 28 as leading zero bits are 28.

Input  : Math.clz32(64)
Output :25

Let’s see the JavaScript code on Math.clz32() method.

Example 1: In this example, we will see the basic use of the Math.clz32() method.

Javascript

// Here different number is being taken
// as a parameter for Math.clz32() method.
console.log(Math.clz32(1));
console.log(Math.clz32(8));
console.log(Math.clz32(32));
console.log(Math.clz32(64));
console.log(Math.clz32(772));

                    

Output
31
28
26
25
22

Example 2: Errors and Exceptions, it is an error case because a complex number cannot be converted into a 32-bit binary representation only integers value can be converted.

Javascript

// Complex number can not be converted into
// 32-bit binary representation.
console.log(Math.clz32(1 + 2i));

                    

Output: 

Error: Invalid or unexpected token

Example 3: It is an exceptional case that it can be considered as a string parameter gives an internal zero then it becomes possible otherwise it should return an error.

Javascript

// Any string behave exceptionally and give leading
// 32 zero bit in its 32-bit binary representation
// still any string can not be converted into
// 32-bit binary representation.
console.log(Math.clz32("geeksforgeeks"));
console.log(Math.clz32("gfg"));

                    

Output
32
32

Application:

Here Math.clz32() method has many applications whenever we need to get the number of leading zero bits present in a 32-bit representation of a number that time we take the help of this method in JavaScript.

Example: In this example, we will see the basic use of the Math.clz32() method in Javascript.

Javascript

// Here different numbers are being taken as
// parameter from 0 to 9 for Math.clz32() method.
for (i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    console.log(Math.clz32(i));
}

                    

Output
32
31
30
30
29
29
29
29
28
28
