Physics Words: Braking distance

Simple Description

The distance a car travels in the time it takes the car to stop AFTER the driver has put their foot on the brake.

Further Detail

Thinking distance + braking distance = total stopping distance. Factors that can increase braking distance are if the road is wet or icy, if the brakes or tyres are worn out or if the car was travelling faster.
