Question 1

Here's something im pondering about. Since the moon has a great affect on the tides of the oceans and our body is more then 70% water(correct?), then does the moon have any effect on our bodys?


Question 2

Does the moon have any effect on lakes or does the moon have an greater affect on the ocean becuase of its mass and the fact it's salt water?




Just a couple question im seeking further knowledge on.

I found an interesting link.
Here's an excerpt:

By now you should see that there are no tides in your tummy, your body, a swimming pool or a small lake, simply because the water at different locations within each of these reservoirs is still at the same distance from Moon, so no difference in gravitational pull exists.

Misconceptions about Gravity and Tides

The Physicist's comments are the ones you want to read. The Q & A at the start are the misconceptions.

This article is also interesting, dealing with the moons gravitational pull on the human body.

Sure does. Make sure not to get caught out on the mud flats at low tide. Lots of people have drowned.

In all seriousness, the tides affect lakes and rivers too. Even dry land experiences a "land tide" of a fraction of an inch.
