Sample text

A tree is made of nodes and branches. Nodes have data and branches connect the nodes. There is one special node called the root. It only has branches going down to the children. It has no parents (branches going up). Each node can only have one parent. A general tree has no limit on the number of children a node can have. If a node does not have any children, it is called a leaf. Descendants are nodes that are children or descendants of children. Ancestors are a parent or an ancestor of a parent.

2), slightly rewritten: ½At2 Š ¼ ½At1 Š ð1 À kΔtÞ ð2:4Þ Therefore we can compute the concentration at time ¼ t2 if we know the rate coefficient k, the concentration [A] at the initial time (t1). Similarly, for the next time, t3, we need to know the concentration and time at t2. This type of equation is a feedback loop since we need to feed the answer at t2 back into the equation to get our answer for t3, and so on. 1 Simple First Order Reaction Consider a first order reaction similar to the one you worked with in Netlogo.
