Is the gravitational pull on the moon stronger or weaker then the gravitational pull on the earth?

The pull of the Moon is much weaker, due to its lesser mass. (This is also why the Earth does not orbit the Moon.)

Which is greater the moon's pull on earth or earths pull on the moon?

The moon is only strong enough to push and pull the tides in the ocean on earth. The earths pull is so strong it moves the entire moon in circles.


What does the pull of the moon have to do with ocean tides?

It is the moon's gravitational pull. The earth pulls the moon toward us and the moon has a little weaker gravitational pull but it has enough to pull the ocean. So wherever the moon goes the ocean follows. Hope you understand it answers your question
