If nobody told you that there is a connection between the moon and the level of the ocean—would you have figured It out yourself? Maybe you would have noticed the appearance of the moon and high tide as a "coincidence." But did you know that this connection has been recognized by men for more than two thousand years? Until Newton discovered the law of gravitation in 1787, there was no scientific explanation of the connection. Newton showed that the pull of the rnoon, and to a smaller degree the sun, explain why we have tides. The moon attracts every particle of water in the oceans. But the earth Is round, so some water Is farther away from the moon than other water. Therefore the pull of the moon varies too. The water that IB directly under the moon gets the greatest pull and heaps up as high tide, The water that is farthest from the moon receives the least pull, The water that Is midway between the two points gets a pull that is somewhere between these two, So the water on the side of the earth opposite the moon heaps up too, and there Is high tide there. If you look at the earth from distance you would see that the highest tide stays almost directly under the moon as the earth spins. So each day there are two high tides and two lov tides, and they move continual ly around the earth. If th moon didn't move, we woul have the high tides exactly 1 hours apart. But since the moor is moving, the tides are abou 12 hours and 25 minutes apart Now, as we said, the sun als pull s on the earth and th .water on (he earth. Bui II pull is much weaker than tha of the moon. In fact, its et'fec is about five-elevenths of lha of the moon. At the time of th full moon and the new moon the pull of the sun and th moon reinforce each other. Thl makes the tide higher, and w have what is called "sprint tides." During the first am third quarters of the moon, th< pull of the sun and moon ar in opposition and we have low er, or "neap tides." grow cook , FUN TIME The Chuokli; Box Teacher: Give me a sentenc using the word ''beans." 1st Boy: My father beans. 2nd Boy; My mothei beans. 3rd Boy: We are all human beans, Mary: Did you know that al television announcers h a v small hands?
