4 Basic Laws of Physics Drivers Should Be Aware Of

Driving Tips
Objects in the universe, including our cars, work based on laws of physics. Obviously, these laws are not written by the government and enforced by policemen. They bind on all drivers and we can’t escape their effects. Factors that affect our cars include gravity, momentum, inertia, centrifugal force, acceleration and friction. Here a few things should know: 1. Friction: Friction simply opposes the motion of your car and other objects in the universe. It tries to prevent cars from moving in the first place or slows down a moving to a complete stop. On cars, friction is exerted mostly through the small areas on the tires that touch the ground. Drivers should be aware that friction isn’t constant and it could be reduced by rain, oil, mud, ice, loose gravel and poor tires. These factors
