Textbook Problem

The basic frictional parts of a brake system are being discussed: Technician A says that the harder the frictional parts are pushed together, the higher the friction. Technician B says that the harder the frictional parts are pushed together, the more heat is developed. 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 discussing the frictional parts of a brake.

    Explanation

    Given information:

    Technician A says that the harder the frictional parts are pushed together, the higher the friction.

    Technician B says that the harder the frictional parts are pushed together, the more heat is developed.

    The braking system is 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 reducing its speed or stopping its wheels against the road surface. The more the brakes are effective, the more they are able to stop the motion of the vehicle.

    The braking system mainly works on the principle of friction...
