Question 2:

Find the Time Difference Between the High Tide and Low Tide on 26 May 2022 for Both Timings.

Answer 2:

We have from the table,
The time difference between two high tides,

Subtraction of time

The time difference between two low tides,

Subtraction of time

So, the time difference between two low tides is 12 hours and 33 minutes.
