Generally the front brakes of an average type braking system stops approx. 60% or more as opposed to the rear brakes wich attribute to 30-40% of the total braking power on said vehicle, that is why typically the front brake master cylinder reservoir compatment contains twice the amount of fluid in it as the rear brake master cylinder fluid fill compartment.

What happens to the speed of a motor car when breaks are gently applied?

effect of force

What made the car move when you pushed it?

Technically, the electromagnetic force.

How do you calculate brake pedal force and deceleration?

when breaks are applied for moving car whose velocity will be decreases and finally car will be at rest position acceleration = (final velocity - initial velocity)/time taken = (0-u)/t = -(u/t) negative acceleration is called deceleration deceleration = - acceleration

Why can hydraulic car breaks be described as a force multiplier?

When you step on the brake pedal, a force is applied directly to a piston of area 'a'. The hydraulic fluid thus pressurized is directed to other pistons of area 'A' >'a' at each wheel which push the brake pads against the rotating disk attached to the wheel. Since A>a, the applied force is multiplied by the ratio A/a.

What are the examples for the principle of transmissibility of forces?

car wheel moving until the breaks not applied

How does the speed an object is travling at affect its stopping disstance?

An object's stopping distance is proportional to its speed, mass, and the force applied to slow it down.A car is the best example of this:Speed: The faster the car is moving, the further it takes to stop (given a car of the same weight, and the same force is applied on the brakes)Mass: If the car was carrying a thousand pounds of bricks it would take longer to stop (given the same speed, and the same force applied on the brakes).Force: If you lightly press the brakes, you will take longer to stop than if you slam on them (given the same speed, and same car mass)

What will the stopping distance be for a 3000kg car if 3000 N of force are applied when the car is traveling 10 ms?

The stopping distance for a 3000kg car if 3000 N of force is applied when the car is traveling 10 ms is 50 meter. This is based on Newton's second law of force.

Two identical cars have forces applied to them Car A has a 1000 N force applied Car B has a 500 N force applied Which car will have more acceleration?

well if both the car are identical in mass the acceleration is directly proportional to force and inversely proportional to mass since mass is same hence car having force of 1000 N will have more acceleration than 500 N one.

What do machines use hydraulics for?

Most commonly to transfer force (like the breaks in your car).

How does friction stop something from moving?

There are normally four forces acting on a body. They are friction force, applied force, weight and gravity. Friction is an opposing force that creates resistance to a body causing it to slow down. e.g If we have a car accelerating 1.55ms-2 and it weighs about 1400kg with its passenger and fuel. The applied force would be 2100N. The air resistance or drag force and the friction of the tries between the surface of the road has generated about 19500N. If we take away the friction force from the applied force, 2100N - 19500N = 600N of applied force to keep the car going but remember that this friction force will gradually slow down the car.

What then can you seay about the acceleration of the moving car?

It is directly proportional to the force applied by the engine adjusted for the frictional force, aerodynamic drag, and inversely proportional to the mass of the car.

What force might pull a parked car into motion if the parking brakes are not applied?
