NetLogo Models Library:
Run Exponential Growth in your browser|
uses NetLogo 5.0.4
requires Java 5 or higher
Note: If you download the NetLogo application, every model in the Models Library (besides the Community Models) is included. If you have trouble running this model in your browser, you may wish to download the application instead.
## 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
This model uses the System Dynamics Modeler.
