Furthermore, the pressure acting at a point in a fluid at rest is the same in all directions. 595 1 g/cm3 and the acceleration due to gravity is the standard value. 01325 x N/rn2. 22 lb/ft2. In many aerodynamic applications, we are interested in the difference between the absolute value of the local pressure and the atmospheric pressure. Many pressure gages indicate the difference between the absolute pressure and the atmospheric pressure existing at the gage. This difference, which is referred to as gage pressure, is illustrated in Fig.

573 x 104ft2/s Speed of Sound. The speed at which a disturbance of infinitesimal proportions propagates through a fluid that is at rest is known as the speed of sound, which is designated in this book as a. The speed of sound is established by the properties of the fluid. For a perfect gas a = where yis the ratio of specific heats (see Chapter 8) and R is the gas constant. 14a) where T is the temperature in K and the units for the speed of sound are rn/s. 02 VT (L14b) where T is the temperature in °R and the units for the speed of sound are ft/s.
