WHAT IS IT?

This is a model of exponential growth using the System Dynamics Modeler.

HOW IT WORKS

At each step, the value of INFLOW is added to STOCK. The value of INFLOW is always the previous value of STOCK times a specified growth rate.

HOW TO USE IT

Press the SETUP button, then press the GO button to run the model.

THINGS TO NOTICE

View the STOCK monitor to see the current value of STOCK.

View the plot to observe the growth of STOCK over time.

THINGS TO TRY

Use the System Dynamics Modeler to add an outflow.

Try different growth-rate values.

EXTENDING THE MODEL

Create a new stock that grows linearly. Try having the level of one stock influence the growth rate of the other.

NETLOGO FEATURES
