When modeling systems in this fashion, it is common to hide many
connections behind the bondgraphic connectors. To this end, one
first places neighboring connected elements next to each
other

making the connection between the connectors. The two models are
then shifted together, until the two connectors are in the same
position on the screen

thereby hiding the connection from view.

Bond graphs are described in terms of four basic variables:

- efforts (
**e**), - flows (
**f**), - generalized momentums (
**p**), and - generalized positions (
**q**).

The four variables are related to each other in the following
fashion:

Power is always the product of effort and flow:

**P = e*f**

The three basic OnePort elements of the bond graph methodology are:

- resistors (
**R**):**e = R(f)**, - capacitors (
**C**):**e = C(q)**, and - inductors (
**I**):**f = I(p)**,

where **R**, **C**, and **I** can be arbitrarily
non-linear functions operating in the first and third quadrants
only.

Bond graphs are domain independent. The four basic variables of
a number of physical domains are summarized below:
