Difference between Algorithm and Flowchart

Slno. Algorithm Flowchart
01. A method of representing the
step-by-step logical procedure for solving a problem.
Flowchart is pictorial representation of an algorithm. It is constructed using different types of boxes and symbols.
02. It describes step-by-step
descriptions and each step represents a particular operation leading to solution of problem.
The flowchart uses a series of blocks and arrows, each of which represents a particular step in an algorithm.
03. This is effectively useful for small problems. This is effectively useful for complicated problems.
04. For complex problems,
algorithms prove to be Inadequate.
For complex problems, flowcharts prove to be adequate.
