Question of the Day
In hot weather, the tip of the Eiffel tower can rise up to 18cm!
This is due to thermal expansion of the metal, heated by the sun. When a substance such as metal is heated, the particles begin moving more, leading to the gradual expansion of the substance. As the metal cools down, it contracts again as the particles move less, and shrinks back to its regular size.
