Python | Equidistant element list

Sometimes, while working with Python list we can have a problem in which we need to construct the list in which the range is auto computed using the start, end and length parameters. The solution of this problem can have many applications. Let’s discuss a way in which this task can be performed.

Method : Using list comprehension
This task can be performed using list comprehension, shorthand for the loop version of logic. In this, we just compute the range using division manipulation and extend it to increasing list forming equidistant list.





# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Equidistant element list
# using list comprehension
# initializing start value 
strt = 5
# initializing end value 
end = 10
# initializing length
length = 8
# Equidistant element list
# using list comprehension
test_list = [strt + x * (end - strt)/length for x in range(length)]
# Printing result
print("The Equidistant list is : " + str(test_list))


Output :

The Equidistant list is : [5.0, 5.625, 6.25, 6.875, 7.5, 8.125, 8.75, 9.375]
