The regular rise and fall in the surface level of the Earth's oceans, seas, and bays caused by the gravitational attraction of the Moon and to a lesser extent of the Sun. The maximum high tides (or spring tides) occur when the Moon and Sun are directly aligned with Earth, so that their gravitational pull on Earth's waters is along the same line and is reinforced. The lowest high tides (or neap tides) occur when the Moon and Sun are at right angles to each other, so that their gravitational pull on Earth's waters originates from two different directions and is mitigated. Tides vary greatly by region and are influenced by sea-floor topography, storms, and water currents.

A force acting on a moving body, opposite in direction to the movement of the body, caused by the interaction of the body and the medium it moves through. The strength of drag usually depends on the velocity of the body. &diamf3; Drag caused by buildup of pressure in front of the moving body and a decrease in pressure behind the body is called pressure drag . It is an important factor in the design of aerodynamically efficient shapes for cars and airplanes. &diamf3; Drag caused by the viscosity of the medium as the molecules along the body's surface move through it is called skin drag or skin friction . It is an important factor in the design of efficient surface materials for cars, airplanes, boat hulls, skis, and swimsuits.
