The Eiffel Tower (Fig. 13–31) is built of wrought iron approximately 300 m tall. Estimate how much its height changes between January (average temperature of $2 ^\circ \textrm{C}$) and July (average temperature of $25 ^\circ \textrm{C}$). Ignore the angles of the iron beams and treat the tower as a vertical beam.
