It Is 9,000 tons which would be 2,000 pound for each ton so it would be 18,000,000 pounds does that help??

it is 10,100 tons (or 7,300 tons if you consider only the metal frame). The pressure on the ground is equal to that oa a man sitting on a chair (4.5 kg/sq centimeter)

Tour Eiffel

When built: 1887-1889

Why: International Exhibition; France to have the world's tallest building.

Designed by Gustave Eiffel, a bridge builder. The plans covered 6,000 square metres of paper.

How built; in a factory, then put together on the site like a giant Meccano set by 300 builder. Held together by 2,500,000 rivets.

PRICE: exactly 1 franc per kilogram.

WEIGHT: 7,000 tons, putting a pressure on the ground of 56 lbs per square inch - less than a man sitting on a chair. A scale model a foot high would weigh a quarter of an ounce (7 grams).

HEIGHT: Originally 984 feet; now, with TV mast, 1.058 feet.

EXPANSION: the tower is 6 inches higher on a very hot day.

SWAY: only 5 inches in the strongest winds. PLATFORMS: at 187 feet, 377 feat, 898 feet.

Going up the tower is not compulsory for visitors to Paris. The view from the top is over-rated. I recommend the second floor. Go up by lift, walk down the stairs.

VIEW from the top on a clear day, 42 miles.

Whoever wrote that above:

The person who asked this question wanted pounds not tons.

anyway i don't know how many pounds, you have figure out how many pounds are in 1 ton, then multiply that by 7.

You may be surprised to know that it actually is not known. It also has to be specified whether the only part in question is the structure or elevators, staircases and restaurant/kiosk material as well.

Structure itself is believed to weight approximately 8 100 tons (1 ton = 1000 kg). 1 665 steps weight altogether some 300 tons and the elevator system weights approximately 1 000 tons. Altogether we can say that the Eiffel Tower could weight up to 10 000 tons, but we will (probably) never know the true weight of it.
