Disc brake 

  • Disc brakes are located behind the wheels, either on the front or rear axle, or both.
  • Disc brakes work by using a caliper to squeeze brake pads against a rotor, which is attached to the wheel hub.
  • The friction between the brake pads and the rotor slows down the rotation of the wheel, which in turn slows down the vehicle.
  • Disc brakes are generally considered to be more effective than drum brakes, as they provide better stopping power and are less prone to overheating under heavy use. They also recover more quickly from immersion
  • When the driver presses the brake pedal, hydraulic fluid is pressurized in the brake lines, causing the caliper to squeeze the brake pads against the rotor. This creates friction, which slows down the rotation of the wheel
  • The components of a disc brake system include the rotor, caliper, brake pads, and master cylinder
