How to span table/figure in two columns for writing paper in latex

While writing paper in latex in two columns, you might need to span table or figure in two columns. If you follow the template and use the following, then you might not get expected result.

\begin {table} …. \end {table}

or

\begin {figure} …. \end {figure}

To solve this problem, just use \begin{table*}   instead of  \begin {table} and \begin {figure*} instead of \begin {figure}.  And, you will find your expected result 🙂
