Although I spent a lot of time on my own‚ I enjoyed waiting‚ watching and observing. So when my brother mentioned that he found

The Earth experiences tides in its oceans‚ by gravitational interaction between the Earth‚ Moon and Sun. The Moon is the biggest factor of tides occurring. It has 2.2 more power on tides than the sun does. The Moon and earth apply a gravitational pull on each other‚ and since most things on earth is pinned down they stay in place. But‚ the oceans being fluid can be pulled toward the moon causing tides.And since the earth is rotating while this is happening‚ two tides occur each day. While the Sun

Tides are the periodic rise and falling of large bodies of water. The word tide is a term used to define the alternating rise and fall in sea level relevant to the land produced by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun. Winds and currents move the surface of the water causing waves. The gravitational attraction of the moon causes the oceans to bulge in the direction of the moon. Another bulge occurs on the opposite side because the Earth is also being pulled toward the moon and
