Which type of brake requires greater application force and is commonly used with power-boost units?

  1. Drum

  • Disc
  • Parking
  • None of the above
  • To determine

    The type of brake used commonly with power-boost unit and requires greater application force.

    Explanation

    Disc brakes are a type of brakes used in vehicles to stop motion. These brakes mainly consist of two rotating discs having a rotor placed between the discs. The pads are clamped against the rotor. These pads are actuated by the piston and hydraulic pressure. When the brakes are applied, the pressure exerts and actuates the pads and disc against the rotor to stop the wheels. Disc brakes dissipate a large amount of heat when the vehicle is not in motion. The hydraulic pressure acting on the pads is perpendicular to the direction of the disc; these brakes have energising effect and are commonly used with power boost unit and require more force to stop the moving vehicle...
