Causal Loop Diagrams
Connections (+ or - ??) Size (area) of carAir resistance force Air temperature Air resistance force Speed of car Remember use nouns Air resistance force
weight Air resistance Net downward Force
Connections (+ or - ??) Size of parachuetAir resistance force AltitudeAir resistance force Jumpers speed Remember use nouns Air resistance force Size of parachuet Net downward forceAltitude Jumpers speed Net downward force
Draw a causal loop diagram to describe the following: As the sky diver falls she travels faster and faster until reaching a terminal velocity. Include divers speed, air resistance, net downward force, and downward acceleration in your diagram.
Draw a causal loop diagram to describe the following: As a car travels down the highway it maintains a speed near the goal of the speed limit. Include cars speed above speed limit, gas pedal depression, and acceleration in your diagram.
