The Eiffel Tower

Fast Fact about math in the Eiffel Tower - When the Eiffel Tower was under construction, they had to think about wind resistance. So they put a curve on the outer edges of the tower so it wouldn't fall. The equation used to solve the problem....- x=distance between the top of the tower and a. Let - P(x)=weight of the part of the tower above a, - f(x)=half width of the tower at a.-Finally: Moment of weight from the tower, relative to point a is equal to p(x) and f(x). (fill in the variables)

Most people associate French culture with Paris, which is a center of fashion, cuisine, art and architecture, but life outside of the City of Lights is very different and varies by region. Historically, the French culture was influenced by Celtic and Gallo-Roman cultures as well as the Franks, a Germanic tribe. France was initially defined as the western area of Germany known as Rhineland but it later came to refer to a territory that was known as Gaul during the Iron Age and Roman era.
