Some Helpful Suspension Information
The job of a cars suspension is to maximise the friction between the tyres and the road surface. To provide steering stability, with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers.
If a road were perfectly flat, with no irregularities, suspension would not be necessary. But roads are far from flat. Even newly tarmacked motorways have imperfections. This interacts with the wheels of a car. It’s these imperfections that apply forces to the wheels. According to Newton’s laws of motion, all forces have both magnitude and direction. A bump in the road causes the wheel to move up and down, perpendicular to the road surface. The magnitude, of course, depends on whether the wheel is negotiating a giant bump, or a tiny hole. Either way, the car wheel experiences a vertical acceleration as it passes over an imperfection.
