see tides because liquids and gases solids flows . the same force that works in them lunar gravity , your body can expireance the tidal effect is also because most water Also water.magnetic wave effect . watch the video feed fuller lifting magnet where a frog with a magnet that is stronger than the earth magnetic feild strip magnet kool.the its hydrogen molicuels same as an MRI does. ig you could stop rotetion land can see Rizes Ocen amid high tide and begin to form a very large drop of water that could leave the earth and go to the moon . but because the world turns the land surface tension of water is kept here .

the moon along with the suns gravitational pull pulls water toward them

it's the gravity pull of the moon, tugging on the waves

The position of the moon with earth changes from day by day. At one state of the moon's position it's force of gravitation icreases making the sea waves of the ocean to rise up.There are two kinds of tides as high and low tides. The moon has greater effect on tides than the sun. But also the gravitational force of the sun also effect in the tides.

the Moon exerts considerable gravitational force on earth. this force raises the tides in the ocean and generates a frictional force which is slowing down the Earth,s rotation like a break..

Tides are the rising and falling of Earth's ocean surface caused by the tidal forces of the Moon and the Sun acting on the oceans. Tidal phenomena can occur in any object that is subjected to a gravitational field that varies in time and space, such as the Earth's land masses. (see Other tides).

Tides noticeably affect the depth of marine and estuarine water bodies and produce oscillating currents known as tidal streams, making prediction of tides very important for coastal navigation (see Tides and navigation). The strip of seashore that is submerged at high water and exposed at low water, the intertidal zone or foreshore, is an important ecological product of ocean tides (see Intertidal ecology).

The changing tide produced at a given location is the result of the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth coupled with the effects of Earth rotation and the local shape of the sea floor.[1] Sea level measured by coastal tide gauges may also be strongly affected by wind.
