Hi all, Could somebody point me in the right direction with a question that I am stuck on, thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An F-16 fighter jet is flying at 220 km/h as it commences to land. The

atmospheric pressure and density are 101.3 kN/m2 and 1.226 kg/m3

respectively. At a point on the upper surface of the wing, the pressure is

measured equal to 98.6 kN/m2. Using Bernoulli’s equation, find the

velocity of the flow at this point of the wing and the total pressure acting

on the aircraft.

My first thought was to use the 1d continuity form of the bernoulli equation,

P1-P1 = 0.5p(V2^2 - V1^2), where P1 and V1 are atmospheric pressure and aircraft velocity and P2 and V2 are the respective velocity and pressure at the point on the wing. Is this correct?

thanks
