I'm finding it difficult to find the exact value of epsilon on python? Moreover, I am also supposed to find the smallest floating point number as well.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wikipedia tells me that the machine epsilon is 2^{−52}≈ 2.22e-16 for 64-bit

IEEE 754 - 2008?Is this the exact value on Python?

Outside of that, I'm not sure where to start.
