  • The gravitational pull of the moon and the sun as well as that of the earth is one of the factor responsible for occurrence of tides.
  • But compared to the sun, the moon is closer to the earth.
  • Due to this the gravitational force of the moon becomes more effective than that of the sun.
  • Therefore, tides are influenced more by the moon than the sun.
