I'm confused about finding the static pressure on a surface of a hypersonic vehicle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the inclination angle of surface 1 relative to the horizontal and I know all the aerodynamic characteristics of stage 1. With a calorically perfect gas assumption, gamma=1.4. I'm getting a little confused with static pressure and stagnation pressure. What is the appropriate equation to use?
