9.11. Self Check¶
 True
 Correct! When f=0.039 and k=0.065 the pattern that is produced looks like the patterns on animals. Though, this has not yet been proven.
 False
 Incorrect, please refer back to section.
Q1: There is a possibility for animal patterns to be based on diffusion reactions?

Q2: Percolation models can be represented using cellular automatons. Below is an out of order representation of the processes of a 2D CA that simulates percolation. Place them in the correct order.

 2
 Each cell is either “porous” with probability q or “nonporous” with probability 1q
 3
 When the simulation begins, all cells are considered “dry” except the top row, which is “wet”
 4
 During each time step, if a porous cell has at least one wet neighbor, it becomes wet. Nonporous cells stay dry
 5
 The simulation runs until it reaches a “fixed point” where no more cells change state
 6
 If there is a path of wet cells from the top to the bottom row, we say that the CA has a “percolating cluster”
 Critical phenomena
 Incorrect, critical phenomena are a common set of behaviors that a wide variety of systems display when they are at or near a critical point.
 Phase change
 Correct!
 Random walk
 Incorrect. Random walk is used to estimate the the critical value more precisely
 None of the above
 Incorrect. There is one right answer
Q3: What is the the rapid change in behavior near the critical value called?
Q4: Please put the test_perc function together so that it will run.def test_perc(perc):

num_wet = perc.num_wet()

while True:
perc.step()

if perc.bottom_row_wet():
return True

new_num_wet = perc.num_wet()

if new_num_wet == num_wet:
return False

num_wet = new_num_wet
