I have to develop a program that downloads an excel file from a website in manageable chunks. Each component can only be 10MB in size, and the file extension is (.xls).

A code sample:
with open(file, 'wb') as f:
for part in requests.get(website_link, stream=True).iter_content(chunk_size=10000):
actual_size += 10000
if actual_size + 10000 >= maximum_chunk_size:
