Question: How do I plot a resource model in Maple?

The rate of resource consumption by organisms,v depends on resource concentration, S. The Blackman model of resource consumption assumes a linear relationship between v and S. Below a threshold concentration, Sk , consumption rate increases linearly with S=0 when v=0; when S=Sk, v reaches its max value, vmax. For S> Sk, v stays at vmax.

The function like this is defined piecewise,

  v= { g(S)   for 0<=S< Sk

         vmax  for S>=Sk

g(S)=( vmax/Sk).S

How do I graph v as a function of S with the graph showing the point where Sk=vmax?
