She had told me, bit by bit, under pressure, a great deal; but a small shifty spot on the wrong side of it all still sometimes brushed my brow like the wing of a bat; and I remember how on this occasion--for the sleeping house and the concentration alike of our danger and our watch seemed to help-- I felt the importance of giving the last jerk to the curtain.
Pressure regulators do not store or produce energy; hence, the outlet pressure cannot exceed the inlet pressure [7].
In more familiar terms, the energy per unit volume is equivalent to the total pressure (prove this by comparing the basic units of pressure with energy per volume).
Consider each of the quantities, specifically total fan pressure, fan velocity (dynamic) pressure, and fan static pressure, described in detail below.
Blood pressure refers to the force of blood pushing against artery walls as it courses through the body.
