Discuss Concepts Explain how, when driving, you control the car’s speed by a typical negative feedback mechanism.

Summary Introduction

To review:

Controlling the car’s speed by a typical negative feedback mechanism while driving.

Introduction:

The negative feedback mechanism is a controlled process in which the feedback gives a negative signal (inhibiting signal), that means an opposite response. The moment when the body experiences something exceeding the normal range, the negative feedback mechanism reduces it to a normal range.

Explanation

When the car moving at a set speed while going uphill, its speed gets reduced as it works against a gravitational force that pulls it down. The moment the individual experiences the negative feedback that the speed of the car is less than the set speed, the speed of the car is accelerated by the individual so that it can move at a set speed. The moment the speed of the car is accelerated, the fuel in the engine burns at a faster rate to produce more gas to ...
