Since voltage provide pressure to the movement of electron similarly fluid pump provide fluid to flow.

fluid pump/motor-----voltage

Sorry I can't get you, give me clear explanation please.

Charan said: (Mar 26, 2011)  
Please elaborate it.

What is a fluid system?

Gautam Kumar D. said: (Apr 23, 2011)  
It is a very complicated question detailed explanation with example is a must.

Irfan said: (May 13, 2011)  
Need more details. Can any one give? please.

Can anybody give some brief explanation about the answer.

Yes I will, first we consider fluid system that contain one closed loop i.e.tank- motor-conductor (pipe) - tank ;similarly an electrical system that also contain one closed loop i.e. battery-conducting wire-load (lamp) -battery. Hence by compairing above two loops we can easily deside that pump corresponds to battery.

Sorry its not clear. How can the pump be compared with a battery whereas its not a conductor? could anyone explain?

Movement of electrons and movement of fluid both are driven by the difference in pressure at different points... which is worked up by a battery in ES as fluid pump in fluid system.

fluid system = electrical system

so fluid pump which produce fluid = battery.

fluid pump produce fluid
battery produce voltage.

Consider the well with motor as battery.

Water current is supplied by motor pump.

Fuild pump-battery

As pump is not producing water itself, just it is giving force for the flow of water. Same way btry also not produsing charges, just it is making force for the flow of electron.

Its very simple!

Fluid system=> fluid pump gives the force to move fluid then fluid will make a path as per the fluid system design.

Electrical system=> voltage source will force the electrons to move. That flow of electrons is nothing but current. It will pass as per the electric system.

By comparing both systems fluid pump is like voltage source.

Voltage source is nothing but a battery.

Thats it.

Fluid system similar to a or like a electical system b/c both of them aim is only one and this aim equal to a bettery.

In simulation between these two systems, one should know about parameters of at least one system :.

In electrical system:.

Current : nothing but flow of electrons (so some physical quantity).

Voltage: force with which electron is moved from one point to other.

Source: which is the cause for electron movement and voltage production.

So, on comparing with the fluid system we can say that.

Battery = pump.

Fluid=electron i.e. current.

Force I. E voltage/potential = pressure.

Pump will give flow of fluid (water) , similarly in electronic system battery will give the flow of electrons.

Fluid system is flow charge.

Jaw said: (Apr 24, 2014)  
Battery is equal to voltage and if you compare to a fluid pump voltage is for pump which keep pushing the fluid to move and that we called pressure and the electron is for water. Gets guys?

Wonderful session, Thank you all.

Fluid system = Electrical system.
Fluid pump = ?
We can store fluid in fluid pump.
Same as we can store electricity in battery.
