The following example illustrates the type function and how we can convert an object from one type to another. 0 # type conversion In the statement C = float(C) we create a new object from the original object referred to by the name C and bind it to the same name C. That is, C refers to a different object after the statement than before. The original int with value 21 cannot be reached anymore (since we have no name for it) and will be automatically deleted by Python.
