kinetic pressure

kinetic pressure

[kə′ned·ik ′presh·ər]
(fluid mechanics)
The kinetic energy per unit volume of a fluid, equal to one-half the product of its density and the square of its velocity.

Here [rho], [u.bar], and P are the fluid density, velocity vector and kinetic pressure, [mu], and [H.bar] are the magnetic field permeability and intensity, V and G are the self-gravitating potential and constant, [eta] is the coefficient resistivity, [[OMEGA].bar] is the angular velocity of rotation, K and [GAMMA] are constants where [GAMMA] is the polytropic exponent.
This analogy is good in that many communities (molecular clouds) seem to set up production plants (star-forming cores) all on their own, without any extreme "triggering" influences, as the forces of long-term common sense (gravity) triumph over low-level community resistance (kinetic pressure).
Dynamic Pressure--Dynamic or kinetic pressure results from pressure exerted by the metal flowing into the molding cavity.
