    n 1687, Issaic Newton dicovered what we refer to as Newton’s Law of Gravitation. He claimed that everything was being pulled by the gravity of another object, and everything exerts it’s own gravitational pull. In this way, the two largest heavenly bodies that are near to us, are the sun and the moon, therefore they are exerting gravitational pull, not only on the earth, but the tides. Because the ocean is a liquid, it is able to flow, the moon pulls the ocean, and the tides follow the moon.
