Dataframe.assign() assigns new columns to the DataFrame, returning a new object (copy) with new columns added to the original ones. Existing columns to be reassigned will be overwritten.
The newly assigned column must be as long as the number of rows in the data frame.
Syntax: DataFrame. assign (** kwargs)
kwargs: keywords are the column names. If the values are callable, they are computed on the DataFrame and assigned to the new columns. The callable must not change input DataFrame (though pandas don't check it). If the values are not callable, (eg a Series, scalar, or array), they are simply assigned.
Returns: A new DataFrame with the new columns in addition to all the existing columns.
