ELASTICITY It shows the degree of responsiveness of the change in the one variable due to the change in the quantity of the other variable. Elasticity = Percentage change in the one variable Percentage change in the other variable It is simply a way of quantifying cause of and effect relationship. The concept of elasticity can be used in demand and supply. ELASTICITY OF DEMAND We can study the elasticity of demand under the following categories. Price elasticity

9 – Elasticity and Demand Demand and Elasticity Elasticity is a way to measure the responsiveness of a dependent variable to changes in an independent variable. Elasticity is defined as a ratio of the percentage change in a dependent variable to a percentage change in an independent variable. Elasticity ≡ percentage change of dependent variable Percentage change of independent variable When: Y = f(X) %ΔY E ≡ %ΔX Fal l ’05 © Reynolds 2005 Microeconomics Slide 1 Chapter 9 – Elasticity and Demand

creates shortage or surplus. Price Ceiling – A maximum price at which a good can be sold. Price Floor – Minimum price buyers are required to pay for a good. Elasticity The price elasticity of demand is computed as the percentage change in quantity demanded divided by the percentage change in price. That is‚ Price elasticity of demand=ED= Percentage change in quantity demand Percentage change in price Where: %▲D > %▲P (1) = Elastic demand %▲D < %▲P (1) = Inelastic Demand

known as price elasticity. The price elasticity of demand can be influenced by availability of substitutes‚ the level of necessity or luxury‚ amount of income required by the product‚ the time period considered and permanent or temporary price change. In regards to substitute or alternative products‚ the more substitute products there are‚ the bigger the elasticity. In reference to necessity or luxury‚ one must understand that luxury products have a tendency to have a greater elasticity than necessities

Elasticity is the ability of an object or substance to return quickly to its original shape and size after being bent‚ stretched‚ or squashed. When an elastic material is deformed due to an external force‚ it experiences internal forces that oppose the deformation and restore it to its original state if the external force is no longer applied. There are various elastic moduli‚ such as Young’s modulus‚ the shear modulus‚ and the bulk modulus‚ all of which are measures of the inherent stiffness of

INTRO Definition of ’Price Elasticity Of Demand’ A measure of the relationship between a change in the quantity demanded of a particular good and a change in its price. Price elasticity of demand is a term in economics often used when discussing price sensitivity. The formula for calculating price elasticity of demand is: Price Elasticity of Demand = % Change in Quantity Demanded / % Change in Price If a small change in price is accompanied by a large change in quantity demanded‚ the product

Elasticity Dr. Sushma Shukla Adjunct Assistant Professor Economics North Virginia Community College 1 Elasticity • In economics‚ elasticity is the measurement of how changing one economic variable affects others. For example: i. "If I lower the price of my product‚ how much more will I sell?“ ii. "If I raise the price of one good‚ how will that affect sales of this other good?“ iii. "If we learn that a resource is becoming scarce‚ will people scramble to acquire it?" 2 Price

gasoline fell by only 35 percent. Source: The New York limes‚ October 13‚ 2005 1. Calculate the price elasticity of demand for gasoline implied by what most studies have found. (2.90-1.90/1.90)= 52.6 2. Compare the elasticity implied by the data for the period from September 2004 to September 2005 with that implied by most studies. What might explain the difference? Considering the elasticity is greater than 1 this means that this good is very elastic‚ so elastic that it is not as heavily affected

There are several examples that come to mind when I think of price elasticity. Included in my list are fuel‚ cigarettes‚ electricity‚ and toilet paper. Price elasticity means that the behaviors of supply and demand are not affected when the price of that particular item rises (changes). Our local power companies experience price elasticity on the energy that we demand‚ when they continually raise prices but the amount of consumer usage is unaffected.
