Abstract: The paper describes a mathematical model on the physical principles of thePitot device for acquiring flows speed. The relation between speed and staticpressures is derived from simple integration of the fluid dynamics equationsfor an inviscid flow. In this way, the treatment is general and is not based onthe Bernoulli theorem on energy conservation, as usually done in scientific andtechnical literature. The application to Formula 1 cars is discussed.
