What Are Tides? Earth and Beyond

Lecture no. 8 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity

What Are Tides? Earth and Beyond

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Trace the origin of tides to the simple fact that gravity varies from point to point in space. This leads not just to the rise and fall of the ocean, but to the gradual slowing of Earth’s rotation, Saturn’s spectacular ring system, volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io, and many other phenomena.
