Yes. That is because you do not need the concepts of energy or friction to explain tidal locking. All you need are tidal bulges, torques acting on them, and the finite response time of elastic objects to distorting forces. The process conserves energy and it works on perfectly elastic objects so friction is not required.It's full of different instances of the effect and it has some good graphics but it doesn't actually include the words 'energy' or 'loss' and the word 'friction' only occurs in the bibliography.
I'm sorry, but this is not a valid argument. You need to respond to what the article does say, not what it doesn't say.That, to my mind does not constitute a full explanation of what happens between Earth and Moon.
I asked you to read it because it seems to me to give a good simple presentation of the mechanism. What about that explanation do you think is wrong? Please be specific.If you are using the Wiki article as your source of information
What about the mechanism described in the article don't you understand?Wiki does not supply that. It would be nice if you were to address my issue, rather than to ignore it and refer me only to that article.
