Stagnation Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

 Stagnation pressure ( \(p_s\) ) is the pressure a fluid exerts when the velocity of the fluid is zero.

Stagnation Pressure Formula

\(\large{ p_s =  \frac { 1 } { 2 }  \rho v^2 \; +\; SP  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ p_s }\) = stagnation pressure

\(\large{ \rho }\)   (Greek symbol rho) = density of the fluid

\(\large{ SP }\) = static pressure

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity of the fluid
