The Suns gravitational pull on the Earth is much largerthan the Moons. Yet the Moons is mainly responsible forthe tides. Explain. [Hint: Consider the difference in gravitationalpull from one side of the Earth to the other.]

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Physics (from Ancient Greek: φυσική (ἐπιστήμη) phusikḗ (epistḗmē) "knowledge of nature", from φύσις phúsis "nature) is the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. More broadly, it is one of the mainanalyses of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Over the last two millennia, physics was a part of natural philosophy along with chemistry, certain branches of mathematics, and biology, but during the scientific revolution in the 17th century, the natural sciences emerged as unique research programs in their own right. Physics intersects with man
