Python Source Code: Memory Address of Variables or Objects

# Variable & Memory Address

number = 13

name = 'Hello there!'

my_list = [3,'apple',67.8]

print('Address of number in decimal: ', id(number))
print('Address of number in hexadecimal:  ', hex(id(number)))
print('Address of name in decimal: ', id(name))
print('Address of name in hexadecimal:  ', hex(id(name)))
print('Address of my_list in decimal: ', id(my_list))
print('Address of my_list in hexadecimal:  ', hex(id(my_list)))
