A first-order, first-degree, linear expression is developed to describe the transient behavior of a practical pressure-sensing system. The development is in terms of usual fluid-flow parameters. An experiment is described whereby the transient behavior is determined for a variety of pressure-sensing systems. Experimental uncertainties are determined. Comparisons are drawn between several published expressions, the proposed linear expression, and the experimental data reported herein, to indicate the validity of the proposed expression. Selected references to related work are given.
