what is the approx brake pedal force that a person applies while braking on the brake pedal?
According to NASA, with the proper position, you can go as high as 2500 N or around 560 lb (a 100 lb is 445 N):i want to know for disc brakes. 100 lbs is a large force!! can a person apply that much of force while he is seated on the pedal??? i want to know how a person who is about 130 to 150 lbs apply that amount force??
One might also say that 1g is not 'normal' braking. It's a rough rule of thumb of a limit of input force.Go and put some bathroom scales against the wall in a corridor, sit on against the opposite wall and push on the scales with your right foot. That'll give you some idea of what is reasonable. I can assure you, 100lbs is not 'normal' braking in a modern passenger car!
That is a capability of 'a leg' at certain angles. The practicality of doing so is neither here not there.I challenege anyone to generate 560lbs too. Maybe an F1 driver in an F1 car capable of braking at 3g (additive force from decelleration), but not an average driver in a normal road vehicle. Not a chance.
