What does charging and discharging of an accumulator mean?

A: Charging an accumulator is when the system pressure increases and fluid flows into the accumulator, compressing the nitrogen gas in the accumulator.
Discharging an accumulator is when the system pressure decreases allowing the nitrogen gas in the accumulator to expand, in turn, causing fluid to flow out of the accumulator.
