1. FIRST ANSWER IS THE CORRECT ANSWER 2. Tidal friction in the Earth-Moon system causes 3. (1) Earth's rotation to slow down and the Moon's orbit to expand 4. (2) Earth's rotation to speed up and the Moon's orbit to expand 5. (3) Earth's rotation to slow down and the Moon's orbit to shrink 6. (4) NVA 7. (5) NVA 8. 9. 10. 11. While tidal friction causes changes in the Earth's rotation and the Moon's 12. orbit, there is no net torque (twisting force) on the Earth-Moon system from outside. 13. This means that 14. (1) total angular momentum (Earth and Moon) is conserved 15. (2) total kinetic energy (Earth and Moon) is conserved 16. (3) total heat energy (Earth and Moon) is conserved 17. (4) NVA 18. (5) NVA 19. 20. 21. 22. The Moon's synchronous rotation is caused by 23. (1) tidal friction on the Moon lining up tidal bulges caused by the Earth
