Brake System Glendora
We all know that pushing down on the brake pedal slows a car to a stop, but how does this happen? How does your car transmit the force from your leg to its wheels? How does it multiply the force so that it is enough to stop something as big as a car?
When you depress your brake pedal, your car transmits the force from your foot to its brakes through a fluid. Since the actual brakes require a much greater force than you could apply with your leg, your car must also multiply the force of your foot. It does this in two ways: Mechanical advantage (leverage) and Hydraulic force multiplication. The brakes transmit the force to the tires using friction, and the tires transmit that force to the road using friction also.
When your brake system is not working properly, the amount of friction required to slow your vehicle down is compromised, which means that you are putting yourself and your precious cargo in danger! This is why regular maintenance of your braking system is so important.
