If the new allocation fails, it will return a null pointer. We should always check whether the pointer allocation has been successful; otherwise we will try to access a part of the memory that has not been allocated and we may get an error from the compiler, as shown in the following screenshot, and your application will crash: When you are finished with the memory, you must call delete on the pointer. Delete returns the memory to the free store. Remember that the pointer is a local variable. Where the function that the pointer is declared in goes out of scope, the memory on the free store is not automatically deallocated.
