# Static Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Static pressure, abbreviated as SP, (English units $$\large{\frac{ft^3}{min}}$$, Metric units $$\large{\frac{m^3}{min}}$$), is the difference in air pressure between the suction side and pressure side of a blower.  The higher the static pressure or resistance, the more energy it takes to move air through the object.
