My code didn't work and I'd like what's wrong with it

The code attached below is what I wrote, and I tried it in the console and nothing really happened. What am I missing, please? Should I create a function with the for loop and then call the function?

script.js
var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];
for (var i = 0; i = temperatures.length; i += 1) {
  console.log(temperatures[i]);
}

Your condition to run is: i = temperatures.length. The result is i has been assigned a value of temperatures.length and you have created an infinite loop.

Try the following in a workspace and check the console:

var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];
var j = 0;

for (var i = 0; i = temperatures.length; i += 1) {
  console.log(temperatures[i]);
  console.log(i);

  j += 1;

  if (j > 10) {
    break; 
  }

}

Use i < temperatures.length instead.
