# What is the exact difference between static pressure and temperature?

If temperature is the average amount of energy and static pressure is the amount of internal energy, wouldn't the static pressure be the same as the temperature?

• Who says that static pressure is the amount of internal energy? – Chet Miller Jul 13 '18 at 0:57
• @ChesterMiller I believe the confusion may arise from the fact that $PV$ is often treated as an energy. This certainly isn't the first time I've heard people call pressure an energy density, so I would definitely appreciate it if you could clarify the difference (assuming one exists). – probably_someone Jul 13 '18 at 2:10
• Sorry I can't help there. I have never heard of PV being treated as energy. – Chet Miller Jul 13 '18 at 2:50
• Temperature is not (average) amount of energy either. None of the two parameters is equal to some energy. – nasu Jul 16 '18 at 19:05
