Storyboard Text

  • Well its not my fault you waters are attached to me I am pretty hot you know. My gravitational pull is so strong that it cause your waters to have a tidal bulged, which creates high tides. Even when I am on the opposite side of you, you still get high tides
  • why are you always affecting my tides
  • Yeah I guess it funny when there are low tides because my waters are so attached the rest of the water is stretch with creates low tides.
  • I a so hot that they call it the lunar attraction
  • Yeah but your attraction is so weak and for spring tides the you have to be one the same side or opposite of earth so that there are high tides. You need me I don't nedd you
  • Hay moon your are not the only who is attractive I cause spring tides and neap tides
  • Because the earth spins on its axis (Its middle line),The water is attached to the moon and cause a tidal bulge at the at the equator making high and low tides. When the Moon orbits the earth the side closet to the moon on the earth has the strongest gravitational pull, therefor it makes a high tide, the whole earth is also attached to the moon this cause the water to pull away from the earth which means there are high tides
  • Yeah hate to brake it to you sun but your neap tides are 7 days after the spring tides when you and the moon are no longer in line and the low and high tides are not as low and high
  • The low tide is when there is not any water left and it is stretched between the two high tides. All of this is called a lunar attraction
  • I guess the would be no gravitational pull, to conduct the tides, so there would be no tides and some places at the top and the bottom of the earth there would lots of water and some places would float. There would be not tidal bulge at the equator and less water at the middle of the earth.
  • Yeah imagine if a meteor was to hit the moon what would happen
  • All of this is called a lunar attraction. There are different type of tides that are affected by the sun, they have less gravitational pull because the sun is further away. There are two different types
  • See sun I am more attractive them you
  • Spring tides are when the sun is one the some side as the moon or the opposite, we experience high tides
  • There are also neap tides which are seven days after a spring tide the rotation of the moon and sun are no longer in the same line and the suns gravitational pull is at a right angle to the moons gravitational pull, therefore, the higher tides are higher and the lower tides are lower.
  • Yeah but I am more hot
