Chevrolet Traverse Rear Brake Rotor
About rear brake rotor
There are two disks in the brake rotor, which force the pads against and a ribbed shield for heat dissipation between the disks. The friction that is present between pads and rotors converts rotational energy into heat and stops the engine. These are all flush-surface disks and you can find both the drilled rotors and slotted rotors.
What is the purpose of rear brake rotor?
The rotors are the circular discs mounted to each wheel (two in the front and two in the back). Rotors should be designed to transform motion (kinetic energy) into heat. As the calipers would press the brake pads together, friction would be caused by the wide surface area of the rotors.
How rear 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 car will be squeezed against the friction-creating rotor. This friction will allow your vehicle to stop while also generating tremendous heat. The rotors contain two iron discs connected by ribs.
