How do motor pumps work?

A pump is used to move fluids by using forces like air. Air moves forward from the way because the moving element starts to move. Generally, these are activated with electric motors that drive a compressor. Thus, a partial vacuum can be created because of the water movement, later it is filled with additional air.
