<nav> section is used to create menus as it says "navigation" . Nav itself is a HTML5 Semantic element like others <header>, <menu>,<nav>,<content>,<aside>,<article> ,<footer> etc and they got NO EFFECTS itself. It works like the same as <div> which is a non-semantic element. So the only reason people use semantic elements is for SEO and easy code readability. Uses:- Semantic way:- <header> <img alt="logo"> <h1>Company Name<h1> </header> Non-Semantic Way:- <div id="header"> <img alt="logo"> <h1>Company Name<h1> </div> learn More HTML5 Semantic Elements here:- https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_semantic_elements.asp

Nav = Navigation bars. It's kind of comtainer of the navigation bars. It's not necessary to use it though.
