after watching the physical domain introduction webinar, a question popped up in my mind.
If you look at the table of domain analogies, Electrical Voltage equals Mechanical Speed while Current equals Force/Torque.
Is there a specific reason why it was chosen this way round? I always thought it to be much more intuitive to pair Voltage with Force/Torque and Current with (angular) speed.
Current "flows", i.e. moves -> much like speed.
An inductor keeps current flowing, just like inertia keeps a mass moving.
A capacitor holds static charge. A static form of mechanical Energy storage is a spring, hence voltage would be paired with force and so on.
Now why has it been chosen the other way round? There must be a reason, I guess? Is it easier to solve some equations this way round?
