Electric Circuits, Hydraulic Analogy: Charge, Voltage, and Current (introduction)

Electric circuits and the hydraulic analogy. Introduction: charge, voltage, and current Electric circuits are very much like hydraulic systems. Here we have a hydraulic system, a pump pumping water through a pipe, and that is very much like a battery pushing charge through a wire. These are the hydraulic and electric quantities and units. The…
