ME375 Handouts 3 School of Mechanical Engineering Purdue University ME375 Hydraulic - 3 The analogy between a hydraulic system and an electrical system will be used often. Just as in electrical systems, the flow rate (current) is defined to be the time rate of change (derivative) of volume (charge): The pressure, p , used in this chapter is the absolute pressure . You need to be careful in determining whether the pressure is the absolute pressure or gage pressure , p * . Gage pressure is the difference between the absolute pressure and the atmospheric pressure, i.e. Key Concepts q : volumetric flow rate [m 3 /sec] ( ) p : pressure [N/m 2 ] ( ) v : volume [m 3 ] ( ) p p p atmospheric * q d dt v v
