Alternately/additionally, if you ask help(p), it will reveal-all about 
the "class" (of which p is an "instance") - including some answers to 
your second question (and perhaps others which logically follow-on).

If these terms are unfamiliar to you, then 'the manual' reference is 
https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/classes.html#a-first-look-at-classes 
(although from the code above, it would appear that you are looking at 
Python 2.n!). There are plenty of other tutorials available. 
Additionally, Coursera has announced a course starting this week 
(U.Michigan), in Python and its classes - which can be audited for $free 
or used to obtain some sort of certification...
