  1. Read and translate the text.

The computer is a universal information processing machine. The installation of computers in certain organizations has already greatly increased the efficiency of these organizations. Computers are a million times faster than humans in performing computing operations.

Analogue and digital computers are now widely used in many fields. The two types of computers differ in fundamental concept. The analogue machine may be variables are represented in the machine by physical quantity and the results is obtained by the measurement of another quantity.

Analogue computers are usually designed for one application, although some machines can be adapted to a range of problems by changing interconnections between their various units. The analogue machine, although limited by the accuracy, can deal with continuous variables.

Analogue computation is applied to solving the behavior of a system. Some kind of analogue computation enables the engineer to obtain approximate solutions to his problems with a speed and ease.

The accuracy of operation of an analogue computer is much below that of a digital computer, but there are several compensating advantages.

Apart from cases that include simulation with actual components, any mechanical, electrical, biological or even economic system dynamics involving motion or variation in time may be studied.
