1.a Give exact definition of each of the following tire properties and input/output quantities:
– Effective rolling radius for a free rolling tire Re
– Slip angle α
– Camber angle γ
– Practical longitudinal slip κ
– Longitudinal slip speed Vsx
1.b The rolling resistance force depends on many properties. Indicate in the next table with +, o, or − whether the rolling resistance force will increase, stay the same, or decrease. Justify your answer.
