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 larger than the moon's mass. As the earth wobbles around the barycenter, it tends to push the water out from behind the barycenter. At the same time, the gravitational attraction of the moon is stronger on the water that is moon-side than it is on the water on the opposite side of earth. So there is a high tide bulge on two opposite sides of the earth at once, and of course then there are two low tide areas at roughly 90 degree angles to the high tides.
No, the moon affects the tides, but the tides do not affect the moon.
Gravitational pull of the sun and the moon may affect the tides. If you notice carefully the tides will be high during a full moon day.
The moon has a gravitational pull on water, which is what creates tides
The moon They dont
There are high tides on the side of Earth facing the moon.
The moon has a gravitational pull on water, which is what creates tides.
The moon affects the tides more than the sun.
the phases of the moon don't affect tides. Tides are caused by the moon's gravity, the moon is always at the same distance from Earth. Sun also causes the tides. so if the sun and the moon are directed in the same place at Earth extra high tides occur.
The moon affects the Tides.
the moon causes tides, which are waves. Please someone further explain how the moon does it.
It doesn't. The moon does.
it can affect tides,
The moon affects the tides more than the sun, without the Moon, we'd have no waves.
high tidesProbably the most notable affect of the Moon's gravity, here on the Earth, are the tides.
the gravity of the moon pulls the ocean.
Yes, the moon has a lot of affect on the sea'a tides. This is due to the gravitational pull. The moon has a lot more affect on the tides than the sun does. This is due to the moon being much closer to the earth than the sun.
Yes it does. The moon's gravity gently tugs on Earth, causing our tides. When the moon is in different positions around Earth, the tides are in different locations as well. The tides follow the moon.
No. The tides are a product of the gravity of the moon and, to a lesser degree, the sun.
The moon affect the ocean tides because of the gravitational pull that the moon has. Where the is a high tide, the moon is pulling the water toward it's gravity. The water on the opposite side of Earth, will pull away from the moon.
The moon's gravity causes tides on Earth.
