  • I tested all of the parameters at different values, but was seemingly able to find a defined carrying capacity when isolating the variable parameter "r" or net growth rate for testing
  • For a very small level or "r", (1) , there was a gradual increase in cell population as time went on. No carrying capacity was reached.
  • When "r" was set at 10, the population of cells seemed to stabilize at around 11. The nutrient level decreased to around 0/
  • As "r" was increased, the quickness of the populations move to carrying capacity (all around 11 cells) increased. The line on the plot became steeper quicker, and then leveled out.
