an essay on the tides theory of the two forces

Book cover
The solid mass of the earth, D H, will, as it were, recede from the waters at Ny in virtue of the excess of attraction, leaving these waters behind it, which will thus be heaped up at N, so as to form a convex protuberance between L and K, siinilav exactly to that which we have already described between R and I. As the difference between the attraction of the moon on the waters at 25, and the solid earth under the waters, is nearly the same as the difference between its attraction on the latter and upon the waters at Ny it follow-s that the height of the fluid protuberances at Z and N are equal. In other words, the height of the tide on opposite sides of the earth, the one being under the moon, and the other most remote from it, are equal.
