How Does The Sun Affect Tides?
What Happen's If There Is No Moon?
First of all, tide is the rise and fall of water caused by gravitational forces of the moon and sun on the oceans of the earth.
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.
With the Moon no longer there, the oceans of the world become much calmer. The Sun still has an effect on them so surfers wouldn't be completely devoid of waves. But the oceans would largely become serene. This has a dire effect on life on Earth
