- TL;DR Summary
- Say: CAR A =has 4 correctly tightened brake pads.

CAR B = has 3 correctly tightened brake pads and one overly tightened brake pad (let's take front right).

The cars are the same except for the differences written above.

When a driver pushes down the brake pedal with the same force, how will the braking distance and time differ? (Car B obviously starts turning to the right, leading to change in affecting forces, even if insignificant)

My guess is that distance Car A needs to travel until it stops is longer than car B (not by much), and so it the time.

I got the answer, but unsure of it's legitimacy.
