The Bernoulli's equation is a combination of dynamic and static pressure. The dynamic pressure is represented by equation 1.

P_{D} = Dynamic Pressure

ρ = density

v = velocity

Combining the initial gage pressure and dynamic pressure will result in the stagnation pressure. Refer to equation 2.

P_{stag} = Stagnation Pressure

P_{1} = Initial Gage Pressure

Finally, the static pressure is represented by equation 3. Notice it's the same equation used to calculate hydrostatic pressure, which means it represents the pressure head.

P_{S} = Static Pressure

γ = Specific Weight

z_{1} = Fluid Head
