Python – Produce K evenly spaced float values
  • Last Updated : 28 Jul, 2020

Given a range and element K, generate K float values which are evenly spaced.

Input  :  i = 4, j = 6, K = 10

Output :  [4.2, 4.4, 4.6, 4.8, 5.0, 5.2, 5.4, 5.6, 5.8, 6.0]

Explanation :  The difference 0.2 is added after 4 to produce 10 elements till 6.

Input  : i = 10, j = 20, K = 2



Output :  [15.0, 20.0]

Explanation :  5 is difference and is added each time.

Method #1 : Using loop

This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. In this, we iterate till K while increasing the counter for difference between successive elements.

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Produce K evenly spaced float values
# Using loop
  
# initializing range
i, j = 2, 10
  
# Initialize K
K = 15
  
# computing difference
diff = (j - i) / K
res = []
  
# using loop to add numbers to result
for idx in range(1, K + 1):
    res.append(i + (diff * idx))
  
# printing result
print("The constructed list : " + str(res))

Output

The constructed list : [2.533333333333333, 3.0666666666666664, 3.6, 4.133333333333333, 4.666666666666666, 5.2, 5.733333333333333, 6.266666666666667, 6.8, 7.333333333333333, 7.866666666666666, 8.4, 8.933333333333334, 9.466666666666667, 10.0]

Method #2 : Using list comprehension

The working of this method is similar to above method.  The difference being compact way in which this solution is formulated using list comprehension.
