Static pressure[edit]

On 20 January you made an edit to Static pressure. Your edit summary said In fluid dynamics the term "static pressure" is never used in place of the term "pressure". Static pressure is only equal to the total pressure in a static (non flowing fluid). See your diff.

The article, under the heading “Static pressure in fluid dynamics”, contains the following paragraph: In “Aerodynamics”, L.J. Clancy writes:”To distinguish it from the total and dynamic pressures, the actual pressure of the fluid, which is associated not with its motion but with its state, is often referred to as the static pressure, but where the term pressure alone is used it refers to this static pressure.” The cited source for this quotation is Clancy, L.J., “Aerodynamics”, page 21. For this reason, I have reverted your edit. Feel free to discuss the subject at Talk:Static pressure. Dolphin (t) 03:15, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
