Let's investigate how the density of the tree affect the spread of wildfire.
We will first generate some data using the model and then represent it using another computational tool called CODAP.
Let's follow an experimental design that is described below.
Research Question: How does density of tress in a forest affect spread of wildfire?
Hypothesis: As the density of trees in the forest increases, percentage of forest burned will increase linearly. That means, if density of trees doubles, the percentage of forest burned will also double.
Let's test our hypothesis.
Change the values of density systematically. Record the value of 'percentage forest burned' in the data table. Make sure that you press 'setup' button every time you run an experiment.
Run each experiment twice. Make sure you record values for each experimental trial.
The software will plot average of the two values that you will record.
