What is canvas in HTML 5?

What is canvas in HTML 5? im little new developer.
Canvas is an HTML area on which you can draw graphics.

""500"" id=""mycanvas"" solid="" style=""border:1px" width=""600"">

var c=document.getElementById("mycanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");

what does it mean? thank you in advance


from MDN docs :

Added in HTML5, the HTML <canvas> element can be used to draw graphics via scripting in JavaScript. For example, it can be used to draw graphs, make photo compositions, create animations, or even do real-time video processing or rendering.
