Braking distance - calculated values

Possible values:

µ: coefficient of friction [ ]:

new tire, dry road: 0.85-0.7
new tire, wet road: 0.65-0.2
worn tire, dry road: 1.0-0.9
worn tire, wet road: 0.5-0.1
snow, ice: 0.1 and less

reaction time [s]: 0.5-2.5

Calculated values:

conditions of calculation:

horizontal road
µ= 0.5 (medium adhesion between the tire and the roadway)
tR= 1.5 [s] (medium reaction)
