**Title:** Automotive Brakes Hydraulic System Diagnosis

**Description:**
The hydraulic distribution system is the heart of the brake system. The effects of Pascal's Law allow for vehicles weighing many thousands of pounds to be brought to a stop with minimal effort. Understanding of hydraulics is the keystone to successful brake repair.
**Standard(s): **

[S1] CHE (9-12) 7: Explain the behavior of ideal gases in terms of pressure, volume, temperature, and number of particles using Charles's law, Boyle's law, Gay-Lussac's law, the combined gas law, and the ideal gas law.

**Subject:**Credit Recovery Science (9 - 12), or Science (9 - 12), or Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (9 - 12)
