# Calculate stopping and braking distance

**Braking Distance**it is typically more interesting to discuss the term

*Stopping Distance*which also includes the reaction time. This calculation will calculate both the braking distance and the stopping distance.

These calculations are estimates based upon empirical studies on normal road surface conditions. Thus, they will give you a rough estimate during normal, dry conditions but **for wet, snowy, icy conditions these calculations do not apply at all**.

The reaction time for situations you are not prepared for (such as most situations in traffic) is approximately 1.0 second (10 tenths of a second).
