The contribution of the flow signal is generally addressed by the weight function in the researches of the electromagnetic flowmeters, and various mathematical technologies were concentrated on the methodologies for solving the value of the weight function. However, it is still difficult to avoid the abstruse mathematical theories and the complex calculation when the solution domain is irregular in shape. This paper treats the problem within the intuitive physical perspective, and the approach, in which the proportion of the current is considered as the substitute for the weight function with the hypothetic current excitation source, is presented. A simple mathematical modeling of the current is built by means of the resistive network without the redundant assumption, and the strict mathematical derivation for the conventional asymmetric flow in the circular flowmeter is made to verify the feasibility and the correctness of the approach. The distributions of the weight function in various situations are obtained with the simulation employed, using the resistive network modeling, and the advantages of the approach are discussed.
