Bathtub Models

These models and simulations have been tagged “Bathtub”.

Use a bathtub model to investigate the manner in which inflows and outflows govern the quantity of a stock. Extend the structure to create and investigate the relationships of a goal seeking balancing loop.

Illustration of stock response to varying inflow and constant outflow

Explore a more operational way to model the shutting down of the faucet.  I think there are some problems in the way this model is developed and explained in the "Units" video.
