gasses. if the earth is accelerating up at 9.81ms then why doesnt all the air get pushed into a dense layer at the bottom of the atmosphere along the ground?
i believe the world is an oblate spheroid. anything i say that contradicts this is purely for the sake of argument.

Read the FAQ.
The gravitation influence of the stars is just less over the North Pole than it is over other areas, that's all.

or you could explain it to me. in my experience, the FAQ is about as much use as a duck billed platypus with earmuffs

I don't have to explain it, there have been a few posts about this here.  Use the search function...it does work.

i know, i'll search for "gravity" or "gas" or "pressure" and spend hours trawling through the thousands of irrelevent posts.

that was sarcasm, BTW

The last the I checked the atmosphere was thicker at sea level than at higher altitudes.  ???

but wouldnt the air get more and more compressed. and also if tides are caused by tilting, should the air be less dense above the side that is tilted up slightly

Do you mean continually over time? Why doesn't gravity in RE continuously make the air more compressed if it's always attracting it to the earth at 9.8ms/s.

Yes, I don't believe titling a FE can cause the tides. I think it more likely the UA is causing it by rotating underneath the earth.

Unfortunately the atmosphere would be the same in either case.

Ummm... The atmosphere is a dense layer in the lower lvls. the higher you go the less air there is to breathe.
