Dynamic Pressure

on . Posted in Dynamics

Dynamic pressure, abbreviated as q or Q, also known as velocity pressure, is the amount of total pressure resulting from the media velocity.


Dynamic Pressure formulas

\(\large{ q = \frac {1} {2}\; \rho\; v^2  }\) 

\(\large{ q = \frac {\rho\; v^2} {2}  }\) 

Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ q }\) = dynamic pressure  \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{ Pa }\) 
\(\large{ \rho }\)   (Greek symbol rho) = density of fluid \(\large{\frac{lbm}{ft^3}}\) \(\large{\frac{kg}{m^3}}\)
\(\large{ v }\) = velocity of fluid \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
