5.62. CHAPTER 5, PROBLEM 62 521 5.62 Chapter 5, Problem 62 Figure 5.38: Pitot-static tube. The static pressure for this Pitot-static tube is measured a distance r above the point where the stagnation pressure is measured and thus has more potential energy. So, p + 1 2 ρ U 2 true + ρ gr = p t Therefore the true velocity is given by U true = ± 2( p t p ) ρ 2 gr Now, the velocity indicated by the Pitot-static tube is U = ± 2(
