This site explains the relationship between our tides on Earth and the Moon. Differential forces are explained as a function of distance from various points on Earth to the Moon. The site explains both a simple tidal model with a smooth water covered Earth and a more realistic tidal model that takes into account the earth-moon system and friction. This site also explains spring tides and neap tides and also tidal coupling and gravitational locking.
