Logistic Growth

During a performance of Boris Godunov at Sydney Opera House, a chicken fell off the stage and onto a cellist. Clearly, it was over its carrying capacity. Video begins with a review of exponential growth before moving on to limiting factors. This naturally leads to a decrease in the growth rate and a discovery of carrying capacity. Video is the 13th in an 18-part series.
