It is also known as critical velocity.

It is exit pressure not back p.

Back p is the pressure out side the nozzle at exit.

Back pressure is mostly appicable for last stage in turbine.

The inlet conditions of the gas are at the stagnation state (p0, T0) which are constants. The pressure at the exit plane of the nozzle is denoted by PE and the back pressure is PB which can be varied by the adjustment of the valve.

Chandra Prakash said: (Oct 2, 2018)  
Back pressure is developed due to steam strike on blade. It's exit of pressure not back pressure.

The pressure at the exit is back pressure and the pressure at the entry is stagnation pressure.
