The Basic Concepts

Kinetic energy
= heat
The brake
system converts
the kinetic
energy of
vehicle motion
into heat

Basic Brake System


1. Brake Pedal - Operated by the driver.
2. Brake booster - Provides the brake easier to apply
3. Master cylinder - Provides hydraulic pressure
4. Caliper and Disc - Slow or stop the wheels when the brake calipers at
the wheel.
5. Brake lines and Hoses - Connect the master cylinder to the caliper at the
Wheels
6. Brake Fluid - Transmits force from the master cylinder to the
Calipers at the wheels.
7. Connector Rod - Connected from brake pedal until master cylinder to
transmit the pressure when pedal is apply.
