# Analogue for $E$ and $H$ in mechanics

I'm playing with mechanical analogues for current/voltage (force/velocity) and passive elements $$RLC$$ (damper, spring, mass). In order to define and analogue for Poynting vector... what should be the analogue for electric field $$E$$ and magnetic field $$H$$ in mechanics?

• thank you, I found more information in physics.stackexchange.com/q/128650 – paketecuento Feb 6 '20 at 18:15
• Here + you can find a comparison between mechanics and electricity, and here you can find a comparison between mechanical and electrical EDOs (could be useful also a comparison between electrical and magnetical circuits)...(sorry need more space) – Dabed Feb 7 '20 at 12:55
• ...I don't know if you can make a perfect analogy but as I read the Poynting's theorem uses the Poynting vector to declare the conservation of the electromagnetic energy so I suppose the closest equivalent would just be the classical conservation of energy. – Dabed Feb 7 '20 at 12:56
