This paper investigates tidal forces in multidimensional spherically symmetric spacetimes. We consider geodesic deviation equation in Schwarzschild–Tangherlini metric and its electrically charged analog. It was shown that for radial geodesics these equations can be solved explicitly as quadratures in spaces of any dimension. In the case of five, six and seven dimensional spaces, these solutions can be represented in terms of elliptic integrals. For spacetimes of higher dimension, we find the…
