I know that tide is caused by the gravitational pull of moon but what I don't know is how it affects water. I have actually these doubts. Why does gravity of the moon creates tides only in water? Are there other things (other than water) where tides are created on earth ( I have heard that, in some moons of Jupiter tides(of ground) can be found on the surface due to Jupiter's gravity)?

The same tidal forces that cause tides in the oceans affect the solid Earth causing it to change shape by a few inches. There are typically two spring tides and two neap tides each month. In a semidiurnal cycle the high and low tides occur around 6 hours and 12.5 minutes apart. Local factors such as weather can also affect the tides.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_force

The tidal force is an apparent force that stretches a body towards and away from the center of mass of another body due to a gradient (difference in strength) in gravitational field from the other body; it is responsible for diverse phenomena, including tides, tidal locking, breaking apart of celestial bodies and formation of ring systems within the Roche limit, and in extreme cases ...

The sun's gravity also affects the tides, accounting for roughly one-third of the phenomenon. When the sun's gravity counteracts the moon's, it leads to lower-than-average "neap tides." When the ...

The Sun, just like the Moon and the Earth, also has its own gravity which can affect the tides. Although the Sun is much larger than the Moon and has more gravity, it’s also much further away ...

The Ocean's Tides Explained The alternating pattern of rising and falling sea level with respect to land is what we know as the tides. What causes this "motion of the ocean"? In one word, gravity. Specifically, the gravitational forces of the Sun and Moon.

Sun's Tidal Effect. Even though the Sun is 391 times as far away from the Earth as the Moon, its force on the Earth is about 175 times as large.Yet its tidal effect is smaller than that of the Moon because tides are caused by the difference in gravity field across the Earth. The Earth's diameter is such a small fraction of the Sun-Earth distance that the gravity field changes by only a fac...

Two tidal bulges are created on opposite sides of the Earth due to the moon's gravitational force and inertias counterbalance. Click the image for a larger view. The gravitational attraction between the Earth and the moon is strongest on the side of the Earth that happens to be facing the moon ...

The sun's gravitational force on the earth is only 46 percent that of the moon. Making the moon the single most important factor for the creation of tides. The sun's gravity also produces tides. But since the forces are smaller, as compared to the moon, the effects are greatly decreased. Tides are not caused by the direct pull of the moon's ...

Most people are already familiar with the idea of high and low tides, but where do they come from? What causes this movement and why does it occur with such regularity? Tune in as Josh demystifies ...
