My model of a car brake system is intended to monitor the rate at which heat increases/decreases as friction between a brake pad and disc increases.

My equation for the force transmitted to the disc is:

Force =

**(δP x Ac) x μb**

where

**δP**is the pressure generated at the master cylinders

**Ac**is the area of the caliper pistons

and

**μb**is the coefficient of friction of the brake pad material.

how can i find the heat generated fromt his equation, any suggestions?

thanks in advance
