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 ...

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.

How does the moon affect the tides? Grant Petty. Gravity is what makes the ocean tides happen. Gravity is the attractive force that all matter exerts on other matter, and it’s what holds us to the Earth. All the matter that makes up the Earth attracts each other, and the result is that it pulls itself into this round ball, which we know as ...

While both the Moon and the Sun influence the ocean tides, the Moon plays the biggest role because it is so much closer to our planet than the Sun. In fact, the tidal effect of the Moon on Earth is more than twice as strong as that of the Sun, even though the Sun's gravitational pull on Earth is around 178 times stronger than that of the Moon.

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.
