ExponentialGrowthExponential growth of connected stock 
This information is part of the Business Simulation Library (BSL). Please support this work and ► donate.
ExponentialGrowth will fill the connected stock from a source with infinite capacity at a rate that is determined at any time as the product of the current amount in the connected stock and the fractional rate given. The rate can either be given as a constant parameter fractionalRate
or as a real input u, making it variable in time.
isCCR = true
). If this is not case, the rate will be converted using the →ForceOfInterest converter.fractionalRate 
Value: unspecified Type: Rate (1/s) Description: Constant fractional rate to be used if chosen 

isCCR 
Value: true Type: Boolean Description: = true, if the factional rate given is assumed to be a continuously compounding rate else the rate will be converted 
hasConstantRate 
Value: false Type: Boolean Description: = true, if the constant fractional rate is used instead of the real input u
