Python: Square the elements of a list using map()

Python map: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to square the elements of a list using the map() function.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

# Define a function named square_num that calculates the square of a given number 'n'
def square_num(n):
    return n * n

# Create a list named 'nums' containing integer elements
nums = [4, 5, 2, 9]

# Print the original list of numbers
print("Original List: ", nums)

# Use the map function to apply the square_num function to each element of 'nums'
result = map(square_num, nums)

# Print a message indicating the operation to be performed
print("Square the elements of the said list using map():")

# Print the result of the map operation as a list

Sample Output:

Original List:  [4, 5, 2, 9]
Square the elements of the said list using map():
[16, 25, 4, 81]
