I have a question about a fluid that flows in two dimensions (x and y). I have plotted a velocity field from the given velocity equation and I am asked to interpret the velocity field and say where the pressure would be the highest and how it changes. I'm not sure exactly how to think about it and everything I look up about fluid pressure and velocity has to do with flow in a pipe changing or some particular case like that. I'm looking for some more general ideas. Is the pressure higher when the fluid is stationary or when it is at a higher velocity? and does it depend which direction it is flowing (whether towards or away from a stationary point)? Thanks.
