How to Convert a Float List to a String in Python?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To convert a list of floats to a list of strings in Python, you can use a list comprehension or the map() function. Here are examples of both approaches:

Using a list comprehension:

float_list = [1.23, 4.56, 7.89]
string_list = [str(value) for value in float_list]

Using the map() function:

float_list = [1.23, 4.56, 7.89]
string_list = list(map(str, float_list))

In both examples, float_list represents the original list of floats.

In the list comprehension approach, [str(value) for value in float_list] iterates over each element in float_list and applies the str() function to convert each float value to a string. The resulting strings are collected in a new list, assigned to string_list.

In the map() function approach, map(str, float_list) applies the str() function to each element in float_list, effectively converting each float value to a string. The map() function returns an iterator, which is then converted to a list using list(). The resulting list is assigned to string_list.

After executing either of these approaches, string_list will contain the float values converted to strings. You can then use or manipulate this list of strings as needed.

Note that if you want to convert individual float values to strings without forming a new list, you can apply the str() function directly to each value without using a list comprehension or map(). For example:

float_value = 3.14
string_value = str(float_value)
