Brake Pads Act as an Outside Force

Brakes are an important piece of safety equipment on the car. After a well-rested and highly-skilled driver, which all Americans believe they are, they are on the front lines. Without brake pads, brakes cannot stop. It is the pad that applies the force to stop.

Brakes work on a simple friction principle. Anyone who remembers the Laws of Motion remembers that an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. By applying brake pressure, the user applies outside force to bring the car to a complete stop.

Brake pads and friction is not the only outside force that can bring a car to a complete stop. A great way to verify this is to run a car into a tree. If running a car into a tree does not seem like the best idea, other collisions can be observed. Run a matchbox car into a wall and repeat the experience if necessary.
