7. Adding new elements to a list
Lists with if statements and loops
Lists in functions
Summary

## Instruction

Nice! We can also add new elements to lists. To that end, we can use list_name.append(new_element):

# define a list
companies = ['Royal Dutch Shell', 'BP', 'Total', 'Volkswagen', 'Glencore Xstrata', 'Gazprom']

# add E.ON to list
companies.append('E.ON')


This time, E.ON will be added at the end of the list as the seventh element (with a new index of 6).

## Exercise

Add the data for the eighth day to your list. The water level was 772 cm on that day. Print the list contents afterwards.

### Stuck? Here's a hint!

Use water_level.append(772).
