2 A useful concept associated with Bernoulli’s equation deals with the stagnation and dynamic pressures. These pressures arise from the conversion of kinetic energy in a flowing fluid into a “pressure rise” as the fluid is brought to rest. Bernoulli’s equation can be rewritten as: [email protected] 0 2 ρΔ V ρ g Δ z Δ P 2 = + + 0 2 ρΔ V ρ g Δ z Δ P 2 = + + Static pressure . – One could measure static pressure in a flowing fluid by drilling a hole on [email protected] drilling a hole on a flat surface, and attach a piezometer tube.
