Construction of the Eiffel
Tower cost 7,799,401.31
French gold francs in 1889.
The Eiffel Tower is 1,063 feet
(324 meters) tall, including the
antenna at the top. Without
the antenna, it is 984 feet (300
m).
It was the tallest manmade
structure until the Chrysler
Building was built in New York
in 1930.
The tower was built to sway
slightly in the wind, but the
sun affects the tower more. As
the sun-facing side of the
tower heats up, the top moves
as much as 7 inches (18
centimeters) away from the
sun.
The sun also causes the tower
to grow about 6 inches.
The Eiffel Tower weighs
10,000 tons.
There are 5 billion lights on
the Eiffel Tower.
The French have a nickname
for the tower: La Dame de Fer,
"the Iron Lady."
The first platform is 190 feet
above the ground; the second
platform is 376 feet, and the
third platform is almost 900
feet up.
The Eiffel Tower has 108
stories, with 1,710 steps.
However, visitors can only
climb stairs to the first
platform. There are two
elevators.
One elevator travels a total
distance of 64,001 miles
(103,000 kilometers) a year.

idea be to build this Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is one of the
most famous structures in the
world. It was named after
Alexandre Eiffel whose team of
engineers designed it. It cost
£260,000 to build in 1889 with
most of the money being
provided by Eiffel himself and the
French state. The Eiffel Tower
rises to a height of 985 feet and
for over forty years it was the
highest structure in the world.
The top may be reached by using
lifts and stairs with the first
platform being 189 feet, the
second being 380 feet and the
third at 906 feet above the
ground. The structure is largely
composed of triangulated
sections and this allowed the
engineers to build the tower so
high.
It was originally looked upon as
a temporary structure, built for
the 1889 Worlds Fair. The Worlds
Fair coincided with the centenary
of the French Revolution.
For forty years it was the tallest
man-made structure in the
world.
The Eiffel Tower was the
entrance arch to the Worlds Fair
and it was one of a number of
designs entered as part of a
competition. Alexandre Gustave
Eiffel's company won the
competition and so the the
Tower became known as the
Eiffel Tower. However, it was
Morris Koechlin, an employee of
Eiffel that designed the thousand
foot structure.
Alexandre Eiffel Morris Koechlin
Koechlin was a junior employees
of the Eiffel Construction
Business which specialised in the
designing and building of
bridges and viaducts al over the
world. one of his first jobs was
to design the framework for the
Statues of Liberty.
His first design for the tower was
rejected by Alexandre Gustave
Eiffel as it was very plain and
lacked 'class' and it was only
after adding more graceful,
ornate features that Eiffel
decided to enter it for the
competition. Eiffel also stated
that he would finance the project
to 80% of the cost of
construction.
The original idea was for the
tower to be dismantled after a
twenty year period. However, it
was so well built and engineered
that it was decided to leave it in
position. The various parts (of
which there were thousands)
were so well engineered that not
even one had to be returned to
workshops for alteration.
After the first year of opening so
much money had be raised from
people visiting the tower that the
cost of construction was covered
and Eiffel became rich.
Alexandre Gustave Eiffel
conducted experiments on the
tower such as using it as a giant
pendulum, a pressure gauge, an
instrument for measuring air
resistance and atmospheric
pressure. In 1898 it was
discovered that the tower could
also be used a magnificent radio
tower. Consequently the Eiffel
Tower was saved.

great information bro zareeb
