Best Answer

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)

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.
