I have run some numbers ... but admit I have not come up with an answer that is completely satisfactory: http://johnthemathguy.blogspot.com/2012/12/quantification-of-my-post-on-tides.htmlJohn Seymourhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11350487038873935295noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1840985738235902482.post-26840593071055612642012-12-01T11:21:50.354-06:002012-12-01T11:21:50.354-06:00I wish you would quantify by how much?

So let us use a body of water, its mass and distance from the moon and find the force due to gravity, and let us also find a body of similar size on the other side and see the amount of force exerted.
