Why the bow goes down?

  1. Nov 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Why does the car's bow (I'm not sure if it's the right word but the front anyway) goes downwards when you slow down?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think it has something to do with centrifugal force and Newton's laws and effective g but okay this are quite a wild guesses and I can't explain it.

    This is really tricky for me and I don't even know where to start. So if you can help me even getting started I'd be grateful.

    And sorry my written english is quite bad. Hope you understand anyway.
