Splitsville

Large sets of raw data can sometimes be a real headache when it comes to analysis and often it's better to break up a large file into lots of smaller ones (e.g. one for each data column). The 'raw_data.csv' file below contains real experimental data for 144 transmittance measurements taken over a 10cm2 film of CdZnS. Your objectives for this mission are as follows:

Objectives

  1. Split the .csv file below into separate files that each contain a single x (wavelength) and y (transmittance) column.
  2. Plot a subset of the data files on the same figure (e.g. every twelfth file)
