### Which force stops a train when the brakes are applied?

Kinetic friction is the force that stops a train when the brakes are applied

### How long do it take for a Train traveling at 55 mph to stop after the emergency brakes are applied?

The answer depends on the mass of the train and the force applied by the brakes.

### When does a train's brakes start exerting force on the train's wheels?

Assuming that the brakes are not "dragging" they start exerting force on the wheels when they are applied by the engineer.

Gravity

### Does two foot braking increase the amount of force applied to the brakes?

It takes more effort to stop a car that does not have power brakes, although its rare to see a car without power brakes any longer. In either case, the literal answer to your question is yes it does increase the force applied to the brakes. Two feet are stronger than one. More force on the pedal translates to more force on the brake pads.

### How is the rate of motion of an object affected by an increase in force applied?

An increase in applied force will cause the object to accelerate.

### How fast is a car going that it takes 131 feet for it to stop?

It depends on the decelerating force applied by the brakes.

### What changes as a result of an applied force?

An unbalanced force will cause an acceleration and a change in motion.

### How do liquids in hydraulic brakes help stop an automobile?

Liquids in hydraulic brakes help to stop an automobile by creating pressure and moving a set of pistons to generate force. This force is applied outward and causes friction that stops the automobile.

### What must be applied to an object to change its direction?

Forces cause motion or the change in motion.

### Why does your car lurch when you apply the brakes?

The friction caused by the brakes causes the car to decelerate. This negative acceleration, in turn, causes a force to be applied to all those in the car. This is the lurch you feel.

### When force is applied to an object but does not cause the object to move?

That will happen if the force applied is less than the limiting value of the friction between the object and the surface that it is in contact with.
