# Is the free-stream pressure the static or total pressure of the free-stream?

Is the free-stream presure $P_\infty$ the static pressure of the freestream or the total pressure?

If used in Bernoulli's equation such as: $\frac{1}{2}\rho U_\infty^2 + P_\infty = \frac{1}{2}\rho U^2 + P$ it is the static pressure. The specific meaning of "free-stream pressure $P_\infty$" may depend on the context it is used in. –  OSE May 9 at 13:19
