Textbook Problem

Which of the following is not a factor in determining the effectiveness of a brake system?

  1. Heat dissipation

  • Lubricant
  • Pressure
  • Frictional contact area
  • To determine

    The factor that is not included in examining the effectiveness of braking system.

    Explanation

    The braking system used in the vehicle is to slow down or stop the vehicle. It helps in converting the momentum of the vehicle into heat by slowing or stopping its wheels against the road surface. The more the brakes are effective, the more they can stop the motion of the vehicle sooner.

    There are many factors that help in governing the effectiveness of the braking system. These factors help in determining the amount of friction generated during braking. Some of them are:

    1. Pressure:
    2. The amount of friction generated depends on the pressure applied onto the surface. As the amount of pressure increases, the friction between the surfaces increases.

    3. Frictional contact area:
    4. The frictional contact surface also helps in determining the effectiveness of the braking system...
