How does an analog computer work?

  • It operated by measuring physical quantities such as voltage, temperature, pressure, speed, etc.
  • It works on a constant supply of varying signals (and not necessarily even electrical). 
    • For example, an automatic transmission in a car is pretty much an analog computer. As the pressure of the pump and the signals on the governor and modulator valve vary, the fluid goes through different valves in the control body and controls which transmission bands are applied at what particular time.
