Stagnation Pressure question? Help.

  1. May 14, 2014 #1
    So this is the question I am working on as shown in the attachment.
    I got stuck in the part that I highlighted, where they divided the Dynamic temperature by 1000.
    WHY ???

    Any help will be appreciated,

    Thank you.

    It's not that the dynamic temperature is divided by 1000. (Notice: there are units attached to the 1000). You have to convert 1 kJ (= 1000 kg-m[itex]^{2}[/itex]/s[itex]^{2}[/itex]) into its equivalent base units so that you can calculate the rise in temperature due to the velocity of the air.
