What makes the dynamic theory of tides different from the equilibrium theory?

Answer

The equilibrium theory of tides states that the whole earth is covered by a layer of water, and that the waters succumb, and are piled up below the moon. What makes the dynamic theory of tides to be different from the equilibrium theory is that most of its reasoning is based on tides but it does not explain the land masses that water cannot move.
