Pressure fluctuation was measured in a turbulent jet using a condenser microphone and piezoresistive transducer. The power-law exponent and proportional constant of normalized pressure spectrum are discussed from the standpoint of Kolmogorov universal scaling. The clear power law with scaling exponent close to -7/3 was confirmed in the range of [Formula presented] These Reynolds numbers are much larger than those in velocity fluctuation to achieve Kolmogorov scaling. The spectral constant is not universal but depends on Reynolds numbers. Measured pressure probability density functions are compared with direct numerical simulation.
