Brad,
I have already explained how i think the average currents are flowing, see my earlier posts.
Concerning your water flow circuit,
With the valve closed, the water flows through csr1 untill C1 is full, this is the start position.
start: # When the valve is opened, water starts to flow through csr1 and water starts to flow from C1, both passing through csr2 (so we can add up the flows from C1 and csr1). # When the valve closes, flow through csr2 stops, but the flow through csr1 still continuous to fill up C1, then the flow stops (start position).
The water flown through csr2 when the valve was open is the same as the water that was stored in C1 together with the flow through csr1.

Regarding the water flow circuit,the question was very simple. Flow meter 1(CSR1) has an average water flow of 5 LPM Through continuous operation,what is the average water flow through flow meter 2 (CSR2) ? We are not talking about peak flow through flow meter 2 here,we are talking average flow over time. We are looking at the current flows here, not sure why "P/in is V x I" is pulled into it as i said nothing about that. My DMM shows indeed the same average current as i see through csr1, so nothing goes out of the window. Because the voltage is a constant. So,if we are using 12 volts,then P/in is 12v x (in my case) 36mAthe 1 ohm resistor has 36mV across it,and the DMM also says 36mA P/in is 432mW Now, we have !on average! (in my case) 72mA through CSR2,which is also at 12 volt's. This means that the !apparent! output is 864mW. But anyway,if you could just answer the water circuit question,then we can take it from there. And to clarify,lets say we have a water pressure of 12 psi(our voltage),and of course our flow rate(amps) through flow sensor 1 of 5 LPM. If anyone else would like to answer the question,please feel free. Brad
