Answer to: What is measured by a Pitot Tube?
Pitot Tube measures pressure to determine the velocity of the flowing fluid
A pitot tube is a pressure measurement instrument used to measure fluid flow velocity. A Pitot-static tube can measure the fluid flow velocity by converting the kinetic energy in the fluid flow into potential energy.
The pitot tube is a simple and convenient instrument to measure the difference between static, dynamic and total pressure (or head).

A pitot tube is a simple device used for measuring the velocity of flow. The basic principle used in this device is that velocity of flow at a particular point is reduced to zero which is known as stagnation point, the pressure there is increased due to the conversion of kinetic energy into pressure energy, and by measuring the measuring the increase in pressure energy at this point the velocity of flow may be determined.
