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.

Gas pedal depression cars acceleration MPH above speed limit cars acceleration cars acceleration cars speed

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.

Causal loops are a communication tool
