According to an article at, “Braking System”

“Of all the systems that help a vehicle function, the braking system is arguably the most important. Brakes cause a vehicle to stop using one simple principle: friction. While there are two common types of brakes disc and drum, we’ll focus this article on a disk brake system. Disc brakes are located on the front tires and sometimes on all four tires on a vehicle. They create friction to cause your vehicle to slow down or stop using three main components.

Rotors: Rotors are where the “disc” in disc brakes comes from. They are large and disc-shaped and connect to the wheel or the axle. Typically made of cast iron, this component creates friction from the brake pads which are pressed into the spinning rotor by the caliper.

Break Pads: Brake pads or shoes are used to create friction with the rotors to cause the car to slow down or stop when the brakes are applied. They are mounted to the brake caliper using simple clips and once connected, they’re held in place by the caliper and rotor sitting on either side of the rotor.

Brake Caliper: The brake calipers are what tie the rotors and pads together and help them create their friction. It’s used to hydraulically, mechanically, or pneumatically force the brake pad into the rotor which gives the brake system its friction.”
