How Does a Braking System Work?

Answer

The brake system works under the pressure law in that, when you press your foot down on the brake pedal, this pressure is applies to a master cylinder which has a piston. This puts pressure on a group of hydraulic brake lines that are connected to each of your vehicle's wheels. At each of the wheels is that brake fluid pressure which makes the brakes work by putting pressure on pistons that then push against linings which in turn push against a rotating drum or disc. This friction slows the wheels and stops your vehicle.
