# Bernoulli's Equation Pressure at Blockage

quark002
Homework Statement:
Bernoulli's equation tells us that a portion of a stream that is slower-moving has a higher pressure than a portion of the same stream that is faster-moving. What would happen if I blocked the flow of two different streams, a faster-moving stream and a slower-moving stream? Why would I experience a higher pressure when blocking the faster-moving stream?
Relevant Equations:
$$\frac{p}{\rho} + \frac{v^2}{2} = \text{cst}$$
Would it be because I'm comparing two different streams as opposed to two portions of the same stream?
