Textbook Problem

The purpose of the master cylinder is to.

  1. generate the hydraulic pressure needed to apply the brake mechanisms

  • automatically pump the brakes during panic stops
  • apply braking power when wheel slippage occurs
  • all of the above
  • To determine

    The purpose of the master cylinder.

    Explanation

    In the application of brake, the hydraulic system uses the pressure of fluid to transfer the motion from the brake pedal to pads. The fluid is compressed in a single large unit and then transmitted into all the wheels simultaneously.

    A master cylinder is a device used in the hydraulic braking system to generate and supply the hydraulic pressure to the wheel cylinders during braking operation...
