Rotation, tides, tidal mechanism, solar system, apparent orbit, real orbit
This article attempts to give a simple and logical explanation to tidal mechanism, based on a radically different dynamics, presented in book ‘MATTER Re-examined)’ . Tides are caused by (accelerating) actions of external efforts on a linearly moving spinning-macro body. Each external effort alters shape of spinning macro body, separately, to produce its own set of tides. Change in shape of a spinning macro body, rather than displacement of its parts, cause tides. Displacement of ocean water in the direction of moving tide is superficial and it cannot produce tidal drag on earth’s solid core body.
