        StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder();
  
        // get default capacity
        int capacity = str.capacity();
  
        System.out.println("Deafult Capacity of StringBuilder = "
                           + capacity);
  
        // add the String to StringBuilder Object
        str.append("Geek");
  
        // get capacity
        capacity = str.capacity();
  
        // print the result
        System.out.println("StringBuilder = " + str);
        System.out.println("Current Capacity of StringBuilder = "
                           + capacity);
