Textbook Problem

When the brakes are applied on a moving car, the frictional parts (brake or) are forced against the rotating parts of the car (brake or). The friction causes the rotating parts to slow down and stop. Just as the energy of the rotating parts is called kinetic, the friction used to stop them is called kinetic.

To determine

To complete:

The given statement.

Explanation

The braking system used in the vehicle is to slow down or stop the motion of the vehicle. It helps in converting the momentum of the vehicle into heat by slowing down or stopping its wheels against the road surface. The braking system mainly works on the principle of friction.

The drum brake assembly consists of a cast-iron drum bolted to rotate with a vehicle’s wheel...
