How does full moon create tides in the Ocean, are they related to each other?

The orbital position of the moon affects the tides, the amount of shadow we see on the moon (full or not) does not affect the tides.

High tide is caused by the effect of gravity between the moon and Earth.

I find it odd that someone whose profile is:

"Olympiad Success is an online olympiad exam practice platform, here you can find indepth practice papers for olympiad exams which can help you to crack the olympiad exams like NSO, IMO, NCO, NSTSE and many more. We are providing mock tests also for students who can test youself before sitting in final exams."

Is asking a science question. Are you getting your answers to these exams by asking on forums such as these? It might take a while to compile all your questions and answers this way.

The moon's gravity pulls water sideways. It does not lift it.

You can go to images.google.com and search "tide calculator". It has about eleven wheels. So the moon is not alone in producing tides.

Whether the moon is full, or new, is only an apparent effect--it is what we see from our vantage point. However, when the moon is "full" or "new" it means that the sun and the moon are (roughly) on the same axial line with regard to our planet. Therefore, the gravitational effect is more dramatic, especially at the equator.

@Setanta,
Thanks. I should have figured that out, myself. I didn't.

@roger,
we use the tidal charts in any marine area to compute our "bottoms". I can pilot into relatively shallow area by pulling down the tidal information n use the "rule of 12's " to figure out whether its safe for me in a falling tide. This is especially true in the Chesapeake around towns like Rock Hall or Some o the drowned islands, and especially in the Bay of Fundy where the ultimate outgoing tides can leave us on a beach.

Course, onc we get in (if by the skin of our bottom paint) we may have to wait another half lunar day before we can get out again.

Which always brings up another question ,which tidal clock is the best

When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and solar are mixed. At those times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring high tide.

These are called neap tides. When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined. At these times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring high tide.
