# Write a program in Python to find the maximum length of a string in a given Series

PythonPandasServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Input

Assume, we have a Series like this, [“one”, “two”, “eleven”, “pomegranates”, “three”] and the maximum length of the string is “Pomegranates”

## Solution

To solve this, we will follow the below approaches.

• Define a Series

• Set the initial value of a maxlen is 0

• Set the “maxstr” value is initially empty string.

• Create a for loop and access all the values in the Series one by one and create an if condition to compare the value based on the length as follows −

for i in res:
if(len(i)>maxlen):
maxlen = len(i)
maxstr = i
• Finally, print the value stored in the “maxstr” variable.

### Example

Let us see the following implementation to get a better understanding.

import pandas as pd
res = pd.Series(["one","two","eleven","pomegranates","three"])
maxlen = len(res[0])
maxstr = ""
for i in res:
if(len(i)>maxlen):
maxlen = len(i)
maxstr = i
print(maxstr)

### Output

pomegranates
