Study up on different types of pressures, such as gauge and absolute, and review their applications in engineering. These resources are mobile friendly and allow you the flexibility and freedom to schedule studying on your time. After reviewing the lessons, take the corresponding quizzes to check your knowledge before moving forward to other topics. This chapter will help you to:
- Review the specifications of compound gauge
- Identify the formula that is used various pressures used in engineering
- Compare the differences between and see how to convert between pressures, such as gauge pressure and absolute pressure
1. Gauge Pressure: Definition & Formula
In this lesson, we'll define the terms absolute, atmospheric, and gauge pressures and learn the equation that relates these three terms. We'll also see examples of gauge pressure.
2. Gauge Pressure & Absolute Pressure: Relation & Conversion
In this lesson, we'll define absolute pressure and gauge pressure measurements. We'll also learn the equation by which these two measurements are related. We'll conclude the lesson with examples of absolute and gauge pressure measurements.
3. What is Static Pressure? - Definition & Formula
Static pressure is the pressure that a fluid exerts when it is not moving. This lesson looks at the definition of static pressure as well as how to compute the pressure.
4. What is Dynamic Pressure? - Definition & Equation
In this lesson, you will learn the difference between static and dynamic pressure. In addition, you will learn how to calculate each type of pressure and how each is applied in real world applications.
