A device (as in a hydraulic system) in which a fluid is collected and especially in which it is kept under pressure as a means of storing energy.
A device that transfers fluid or electrical energy into mechanical energy.
A change in the velocity of a fluid caused by a constriction produces an opposite change in pressure.
The volume of a gas at a constant temperature is inversely proportional to its pressure.
(1) Tending to move away from a center. (2) A type of hydraulic pump.
The volume of a gas at a constant pressure is directly proportional to its temperature.
A device that converts mechanical force into pneumatic energy.
Part of a pump that consists of a flexible membrane.
Movement of an object through a distance.
The behavior of matter when in motion; (physics) the study of why objects move.
A component used to remove impurities from air or liquids.
The medium used to transfer power can be a liquid or a gas.
A reservoir for liquid or a pressure tank for gas.
A liquid that is used in hydraulic systems to transfer energy; usually an oil-based substance
The energy of an object due to its mass and motion; calculated using the objects mass, m, and velocity, v. KE=1/2mv*v
The law that an external pressure applied to a fluid in a closed vessel is uniformly transmitted throughout the fluid
The force generated when energy is applied to a fluid; force per unit area.
A device that converts mechanical energy to fluid energy.
Motion back and forth along a linear path.
Any of various controls or devices for regulating or controlling fluid flow, pressure, temperature, etc.
The study of objects in a state of equilibrium.
A measurement of how warm something is; also the average kinetic energy of the individual molecules of a substance
Any of numerous mechanical devices by which the flow of liquid, gas, or loose material in bulk may be started, stopped, or regulated by a movable part that opens, shuts, or partially obstructs one or more ports or passageways.
The thickness or flow characteristic of a liquid; the more viscous, the slower a liquid will flow.
The amount of space occupied by a three-dimensional object as measured in cubic units.
