Affected by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun, sea levels rise and fall on a daily basis. Ask questions here about high tide, low tide, spring tide and neap tide.
There are many causes for this: One very common cause is that you're "topping off" the ball. This means you're striking the ball on the top, not getting good contact. To correct this problem, perhaps bend your knees more, don't choke up on the clubs as much, or buy longer clubs. The best thing you …

It's not the moon's gravity alone, but the interaction of the earth and moon. One influence is the fact that the earth-moon system orbits around the common center of gravity of earth-moon. This point is called the barycenter, and it is within the body of the earth since earth's mass is considerably …

Reason for Two Tides Tides are caused not simply by gravity but by the gravity gradient or in other words the difference in gravity in different places. The side of the earth that is closer to the moon is more strongly accelerated than the side that's far away. The water that's near the moon gets pu…

Tides are created by the Gravitational pull of the moon and the sun. High tide and low tide are 6 hours apart. There are 2 high tides and two low tides during the 24 hour period.

The moon, throughout history, has had a big impact on humans. It appears in many songs, poetry, and stories. The moon also helped prove that the earth was round, which had a huge affect on society. There is no physical affect on humans however. The gravitational forces due to the moon are too small.

The gravitational effect of the moon causes both the high tide and low tides. The gravity of the moon attracts water which then is attracted by the much powerful force of the earth. These gravitational forces cause low and high tides.

The Sun i think NO!!! It's the gravitational pull of the MOON!!! As it pull the Earth from opposite sides, it causes the tides. This "pull" on the Earth elongates the Earth by about 8 ft in opposite directions. I really hope you didn't use the SUN answer as your final answer. :)

During the moon's quarter phases the sun and moon work at right angles, causing the bulges to cancel each other. The result is a smaller difference between high and low tides and is known as a neap tide. Neap tides are especially weak tides. They occur when the gravitational forces of the Moon and t…

The Moon's gravitational pull, as it goes around the Earth, makes the waters of the seas follow its motion. Also, on the opposite side of the Earth from the Moon, the seas have the least gravitational pull and seem to be pushed away from the moon. Because of these two gravitational effects, there ar…
