The formation of an air or vapor pocket (or bubble) due to lowering of pressure in a liquid. Often the result of a solid body, such as a propeller or piston, moving through the liquid. Cavitation can occur in a hydraulic system as a result of low fluid levels drawing air into the system. This produces tiny bubbles that expand explosively at the pump outlet causing metal erosion and eventual pump destruction.
