The attached pdf file contains the explanations. Here is the Matlab script with the numbers I used:

function calc()

m = 7.35e22 ;

M = 5.97e24 ;

D = 3.84e8 ;

R = 6.4e6 ;

delta_tide = (m/M)*R^4/D^3*3/2

lin_equip_speed = 4e7/(24*3600)

The numbers for Earth and Moon can be taken from the following web pages:
