Diameter in relation to tides

  • #1
Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can offer. I really appreciate it.
I am learning about tides and having some trouble here:
“What would be the effect on the Earth’s tides if the diameter of the Earth were very much larger than it is? What would be the effect if the Earth were as it presently is, but the moon very much larger and the same mass?”

Thanks again.

What do you think? What determines the tidal force?
