  • While revolving around the earth, the moon makes a right angle with respect to the earth and the sun.
  • This position occurs on the first and the third quarter of each month.
  • On both these days, the forces of both the sun and the moon operate at right angles on the earth.
  • The attraction of the sun and the moon are not complementary but at right angles to each other.
  • Due to this, the water level rise is less than usual at the time of high tide.
