well m not given any hints . my professor just asked me these questions outright.

and presented you with letter bulleted multiple choice multiple choices? even if he did no one is going to tell outright

the total pressure is eqal to dynamic pressure plus the static pressure. but when a flow is brought to rest, the dynamic pressure becomes zero. the only pressure left is static pressure.when the flow is at rest the pressure at a point is same in all directions.But i dunt know how to coordinate this concept with the thermodynamic processes. In these thermodynamic processes like isothermal, adiabatic, isentropic pressure is never constant. So my guess is isobaric process. m i correct? Can you please tell me what exactly is happening?

it was kindda surprise test. well i have presented my thoughts. Can ya please correct me?
