# Laplace's tidal equations

In 1776, Pierre-Simon Laplace published a paper in which he analyzed the tides of a body of fluid with consideration as to the rotation of the body that fluid exists on.

$\frac{\partial}{\partial \theta} \left(vD \sin( \theta )\right) + \frac{\partial}{\partial \phi} (uD) + r \sin( \theta ) \frac{\partial \zeta}{\partial t} = 0.$
