THe moon attracts the earth and the objects of the earth. So, the phenomenon of tides is observed. SO we humans are also attracted by the moon. Hence the weight that we see should not be our actual weight. When the moon and earth's gravity act in same direction, our weight should increase. When the moon and earth's gravity act in opposite directions, our weight should decrease. BUt no change in weight is observed by us. Why is it so??
