Unpacking in Python refers to assigning values in an iterable object to a tuple or list of variables for later use. We can perform unpacking by using an asterisk (*) before the object we would like to unpack.

Unpacking a range object

To first create a range object of odd numbers between 1 and 10:

numbers = range(1,11,2)
print(numbers)
range(1, 11, 2)

To unpack the elements of the range object into a list:

numbers_list = [*numbers]
print(numbers_list)
[1, 3, 5, 7, 9]
