Crazy amateur studying Aeronautics learning Physics (Wanna know how much I love Physics?). I spend most of my time reading stuff in the internet, especially Stack Exchange (Wanna know how SE changed me?). Then, I'll be coding, gaming, and (sometimes) lurking in my new blog. When situation forces me to get up from my PC, I juggle...

@NPSF3000: True. Obviously, the $g$ can't match the $mr\omega^2$ component, especially when $\omega$ is that large. Okay, I'll add it to my answer. Thanks for bringing that up. :)

@NPSF3000: Not exactly. That's what I mentioned above. The net acceleration might be zero, but not the "g" itself! When stuff is in orbit, the centripetal acceleration balances the "g", that doesn't mean "g" is zero... ;-)

revised Why less temperature at high altitude
Briefly edited to mention that this argument holds only for troposphere!

Hmmm... That's an useful link. Looks like you've given the inverse relations $V\to F$ and $I\to F$. Based on your link (and Phonon's argument), I might guess that the current-source equivalent is (probably) mathematical, and so I don't think I should expect any intuitive explanation for that. Anyways, thanks for your answer :)

Yep, I agree with your argument that voltage can be thought of as change in magnetic flux. Thanks :)

@Floris: I've revised my question with a sample of the differential equations which obviously show my confusion :)

comment Would magnetic flux be necessary for analogous systems?
Dear @Luboš: Well, I'm able to understand the equivalence for the $F\to V$ system quite well. Can you specify which of those entries disagree? In his lecture, Feynman addressed only the voltage-analogous system (which I understand just fine). Only the latter entries (for the current-analog) are confusing me (which wasn't addressed by Feynman)
