Hi there,

Im currently doing my A2 physics project on Supersonic flight. Im really struggling to understand the concept of Stagnation pressure, it just really hasn't clicked yet. I understand that the fluid 'responds' to pressure waves by building up stagnation pressure and stagnation points for the air to flow over or under the aircraft. Could somebody maybe give me what explanation or scenario worked for them to grasp the concept?

2. Relevant equations

Bernoulli's equation: P(total)= 0.5*rho*velocity^2 + P(static)

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried to understand this but I just need some guidance, another way to describe it would be great, it will click eventually!

Thanks alot.
