# Python program to find Equilibrium index of an array ## Equilibrium index of an array

Equilibrium index of an array is an index such that the sum of elements at lower indexes is equal to the sum of elements at higher indexes.

Sum of elements at lower indexes = Sum of elements at higher indexes.
Example

Arr= {-7,1,5,2,-4,3,0}

sum= -7+1+5=-1 -4+3+0=-1

Equilibrium Index= 3

## Algorithm

• Step 1- Initialize left_sum = 0
• Step 2- Find the sum of the array as sum.
• Step 3- For i = 1 to end of the array, do the following:
• Step 4- Update sum to get the right sum.
• step 5- sum = sum – arr[i] // sum is the right sum.
• Step 6- If left_sum == sum, return current index.
• Step 7- Update left_sum = left_sum + arr[i]
• Step 8- Return -1 and exit the algorithm. // Equilibrium index is not found.

## Python Program

```a=list(map(int,input("ENTER ARRAY ELEMENTS ").split()))
ans=-1
for i in range(1,len(a)):
if sum(a[:i])==sum(a[i+1:]):
ans=i
print("EQUILIBRIUM INDEX OF AN ARRAY: ")
break
print(ans)
```
