Abstract : An arithmetical calculation is made of the flow at the mouth of a Stanton Pitot as the Reynolds number tends to zero. A stationary eddy is found under the lip of the Pitot. A figure is determined for the height of the effective center of the Pitot; the value obtained is greater than the experimental value determined by Sir Geoffrey Taylor (Proc. Roy. Soc. A. 166:476, 1938)
