Hi everyone, sorry if I'm new to this and this subject have already been posted, but i have a test tomorrow, and i need help. The question is that when the sun, the moon, and the earth are in a straight line, with the moon is in between the sun and the earth. It is reasonable to think that the water would be pulled towards the sun and moon, but in my textbook, a diagram shows the on the other side of the earth, there is also a high tide. Why would the water also bugle out on the other side? What force is acting upon it to make it bugle out? PS I asked my science teacher and she told me to wait until gr.11 physics, but the test is tomorrow!! any help would be greatly appreciated.
