Braking of a car

Ever wondered how a car stops?

The process of braking of a car can be broken down into three steps:
  1. Reaction
  2. Applying the brakes
  3. Deceleration

First of all, the human, or the person driving/controlling the vehicle assesses the situation and decides to stop the vehicle.

Next, the person applies the brake pedal, or engages the braking system of the vehicle.

Further, the physical forces work and decelerate the car until it stops.

An interactive visualization for the scenario can be seen by clicking on the below link.
