Java Program on Bitwise AND Operator

In the previous article we have discussed about Java Program on Bitwise Unsigned Right Shift Operator

In this article we are going to see the use Bitwise AND operator in Java.

Java Program on Bitwise AND Operator

Bitwise AND Operator:

Bitwise AND operator is a binary operator which is represented by & symbol. It performs manipulation on each bit of a number i.e. bit by bit AND operation. It means it returns only 1 if both the bits are 1 else it returns 0.

Java Bitwise AND Operator


operand1 & operand2


  • operand1 refers to first operand
  • & refers to Bitwise AND operator
  • operand2 refers to second operand


A = 2 in binary 0010
B = 3 in binary 0011
A & B = 2 = 0010

Let’s see an program to understand it more clearly.


  • Declare two number.
  • Perform Bitwise AND operation on them by using operator.
  • Print the result.
public class Main
    public static void main(String[] args)   
        //declaring two numbers
        int a = 2,  b = 3;   
        //performing Bitwise AND operation
        int result = a & b;
        //printing result
        System.out.println("a & b = "+result);   

a & b = 2
