Size of an object in Python

I want to find the size of any object in Python. For example, if i is an object that stores the value "5", how should I find the memory space occupied by it?

Use sys.getsizeof() function:

>>> import sys
>>> s = "string object"
>>> i = 56
>>> sys.getsizeof(s)
38
>>> sys.getsizeof(i)
14
>>>

The size of the objects is given in bytes
