1

Turbulent flow

Oil flows turbulently and creates a higher resistance
-sharp corners
-abrupt diameter changes

2

Back pressure

Pressure created by resistance to flow on the return side of a system or component

3

Energy

The ability to preform work

4

What are the two states of energy

Kinetic
Potential

5

What is force

The push or pull force that is capable of producing or changing the motion of a body

6

How do kinetic and potential energy relate to hydraulic fluids

Potential - pressure
Kinetic - flow

7

Metric output power

=flow rate (L/min) x pressure (MPa) x 0.0167

8

Laminar flow

When the oil flows through system in straight parallel flows
-gradual corners
-smooth size changes
