Total pressure is a sum of the static pressure and the dynamic one, and is said to be the same along a pipe/duct.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the water pipe gauge (static) pressure is maximal after the pump and minimal at the pipe outlet, but the speed and the density being the same, the dynamic pressure is the same everywhere. So, the total pressure is different at different points ?
