Textbook Problem

While discussing what affects the amount of pressure exerted by the brakes: Technician A says that the shorter the line, the more pressure there will be. Technician B says that braking force will increase if the size of the pistons in a master cylinder are increased. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A only

  • Technician B only
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    The technician with correct approach in diagnosing the effect of brakes.

    Explanation

    Given information:

    Technician A says that the shorter the line, the more pressure there will be.

    Technician B says that braking force will increase if the size of piston in master cylinder is increased.

    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. It changes the driving mechanical pressure of the pedal into the hydraulic force of the brakes. It also helps in controlling the pressure of the fluid into the entire system.

    In the application of brake, the hydraulic system uses the pressure of fluid to transfer the motion from the brake pedal to pads...
