Question 2 - 50 Is there such a thing as a dark side of the moon? (meaning one side is ALWAYS dark, receiving no light) Explain why or why not.
Answer 2 – 50 No. The moon always has day and night just like Earth. The moon both rotates and revolves, but at the same rate. For every revolution the moon makes around the Earth, the moon also rotates one time.
Question 5 - 50 Below is a graph of tides over the period of a few months. Explain why some high tides are higher than others at certain points.
Answer 5 – 50 The higher high tides occur during spring tides because the moon and sun are working together. The lower high tides occur during neap tides because the moon and the sun are NOT working together.
