Part 2

The Hydrolic System is the perfect example of a feedback system. Our atmosphere is filled with moisture or water in it’s gaseous state.  When the water particles become large enough it precipitates. The precitation  comes back down and the earth utilizes the water in may different ways. What ever the land doesn’t use runs off back to lakes, oceans and other bodies of water. The water then evaporates, to bring back the water back to it’s gaseous state to start the cycle all over again which is feedback.

A computer network exemplifies a system of information. A client inputs information into a computing device which then gets sent through a network maybe the inter net or intranet and reaches a server which retrieves this information and vice-versa.

A light switch can be opened or closed. When the switch is on, the circuit is open. It is giving off feedback from its energy source the producing it’s emissions of light. When it is on the off position nothing is happening rendering it a closed system. There is no information being passed.
