Pressure - Types - Kinematic Pressure

Kinematic Pressure

is the kinematic pressure, where is the pressure and constant mass density. The SI unit of P is m2/s2. Kinematic pressure is used in the same manner as kinematic viscosity in order to compute Navier-Stokes equation without explicitly showing the density .

Famous quotes containing the word pressure:

    Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler. Physical ability and moral determination count for nothing. It is impossible to perform the simplest act when the gods say “no.” I have no idea how they bring pressure to bear on such occasions; I only know that it is irresistible.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)
