Part 7 explores how the Moon’s gravitational pull impacts Earth and causes the tides to reach high and low points. This video also explores how geographic regions and time of day play a factor in the changes in tides. Viewers will learn important terms, like gravity and density, and how we can see those concepts at work in the universe and on Earth.
