Tides

Postby 2ce1ca7cfa984c8a9434be6421ec6206 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 5:15 am

What makes some locations experience very high and very low tides, while other locations on Earth barely experience the rise and fall of tides?

It depends on their location on the earth. Since the earth has a natural tilt and rotates every day, the strength of tide relates to gravity.
