Problem 7CQ

Problem 7CQ

As cars travel, oil and gasoline leaks onto the road surface. If a light rain falls, what does this do to the control of the car? Does a heavy rain make any difference?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

The control of the car depends on the frictional force that exists between the tyres of the car and the road surface. If oil and gasoline leaks onto the surface, this frictional force reduces and thereby the car slips on the road.
