Chevrolet Traverse Front Brake Rotor
About front brake rotor
A brake rotor has two discs for the pads to rub against, as well as a ribbed frame for heat dissipation between the discs. The friction between the pads and rotors changes rotational energy into heat energy, which ultimately put a stop to your vehicle. Many of these are flush surface balls. There are also rotors which are both drilled and slotted.
What is the purpose of front brake rotor?
The rotors are the circular discs attached to each wheel (two at the front and two at the back). Rotors should have been designed to transform motion (kinetic energy) into heat energy. When the calipers would press the brake pads together, friction would be generated from the wide surface area of the rotors.
How front brake rotor works?
Brake pads will operate hand in hand with rotors to stop the vehicle. When you step on your brake pedal, the brake pads of your vehicle will be squeezed against the friction-creating rotor. This friction will cause your vehicle to stop while also generating tremendous heat. The rotors contain two iron discs connected by ribs.
