2.7. Being Aware of The Need For Safety


Features in Vehicles.[ 1-3 ]

2.11. Appreciating The Importance of


Maximising The Effiency of Devices. [ 4-
6]

2.7. BEING AWARE OF THE NEED FOR


SAFETY FEATURES IN VEHICLES
1) Advanced in Technology have made it
possible for vehicles nowadays to be built
with various safety features.

2) This can reduce the damage and injury


caused by high impulsive forces during
collision.

3) Figures 2.7.1. Shows the safety features in


a vehicles.

Figure 2.7.1
 The Safety Analysis From The Motion
1) A driver notices a boy crossing the
road suddenly. He quickly brakes the car.
As Shown in the Figure 2.7.2

Figures 2.7.2

2) Whether or not the car will hit the boy


depends on its distance, speed, thinking
distance and also braking distance.
3) It takes time for he driver to react before
he brakes the car. In this fraction of a second,
the car still travels a short distance at a
constant speed, v. his called the ‘thinking
distance’.
4) The car will still travel a short distance
after the brake is pressed. This is called
the ‘braking distance’. The car decelerates.
5) The total stopping distance = Thinking
distance + Braking distance

Figures 2.7.3. Stopping distance = thinking distance + braking distance

6) On a dry road. With good brakes and


normal reaction time, the stopping
distance will be the following patterns.

Figure : 2.7.4
7) The Braking distance the car covers
from the moment the driver is aware of
the need to stop to the point at which the
vehicles comes to a complete halt.
The Thinking Distances Increase The Braking Distance Increase
when when
1) The driver takes drugs and alcohol. 1) The car is heavier.

2) The driver is tired. 2) The road is wet or smooth.

3) The road is poorly maintained.

2.11. APPRECIATING THE


IMPORTANCE OF MAXIMISING THE
EFFICIENCY OF DEVICES
Figure 2.11.1 : The Various Energy Convertors

1) Figures 2.11.1 shows the 3 energy


converting devices that receive energy in
one from and transform in into another
useful form.
 The Process of Transforming The
Input Energy Into The Output Energy.

1) Some of the input energy is always


transform into unwanted forms of energy.
2) Therefore, the efficiency of energy
convertors is always less than 100%.
3) We often have to pay for the input
energy used by a device. For the
example, the driver of a car has to pay for
the petrol to be used by the car engine
while he cost of the electrical energy we
use every day is shown in the monthly
electricity bill.
4) Both the useful output energy and
unwanted energy are lost to the
surroundings.

Figure 2.11.2 : Sankey Diagram For The Energy Conversions in The


Operation of a Car

5) Since the energy resources in his world


are limited, it is very importance that a
devicemakes the best possible use of the
input energy.
