Why is the gravitational pull of the moon stronger than the gravitational pull of the sun?
The gravitational pull of the moon is actually a lot weaker than the sun (hence we orbit the sun and not the moon), however as the moon is so much closer to us the effect of it's gravitational pull is more apparent to us (eg tides). The reason for the difference in gravitational forces is down to the mass of the object, the sun is MASSIVE and has a large gravitational force but is a long way away while the moon as a small gravitational force but is very close so we feel the majority of it's pull.
