Question

. What is the relationship between price elasticity and position on the demand curve? For example, as you move up the demand curve to higher prices and lower quantities, what happens to the measured elasticity? How would you explain that?

Answer #1

At point R, Elasticity = 1 as the percentage change in QD=Percentage change in price

In the upper segment,price elasticity is greater than 1, as an increase in price will cause the quantity demanded to change by a greater percentage.At point P,the elasticity will be equal to infinity.

In the lower segment, price elasticity is less than 1 as the percentage change in quantity will be lower than the percentage change in price. At point Q, the elasticity will be equal to 0.

what happens to the absolute value of the price elasticity of
demand as you move up a demand curve

1. What is the relationship between price elasticity of demand
and revenues? How do you find the elasticity at any point on a
linear demand curve?
2. What is the marginal utility of a dollar? How does our
understanding of the rational consumer allow us to interpret demand
as a schedule of marginal benefits?
3. Solve the consumer’s problem when utility is logarithmic, so
that the marginal utility of an apple, say, is equal to 1/Qa, where
Qa is the...

The difference between price elasticity of demand and income
elasticity of demand is that
A. income elasticity of demand examines how an individual's
income changes when prices change and the price elasticity of
demand examines how quantity demand changes when price changes.
B. income elasticity measures the responsiveness of income to
changes in supply while price elasticity of demand measures the
responsiveness of demand to a change in price.
C. income elasticity refers to a horizontal shift of the demand...

how
do you draw the demand curve q=250-10p
calculate the price elasticity of demand at prices of $5, $10, and
$15 to show how it changes as you move along this linear demand
curve

The equation for a demand curve is P=2/Q. What is the elasticity
of demand as price falls from 5 to 4? What is the elasticity of
demand as the prices falls from 9 to 8? Would you expect the
answers to be the same? Why/why not?

Explain the price elasticity on a demand curve and state its
relationship to a firm’s total revenue and relationship to the
consumers total expenditure?

1) Firms are interested in the magnitude of the price elasticity
of demand coefficient. The magnitude of ?? determines whether the
demand for a good or service is elastic, inelastic or unit elastic.
For the following cases indicate whether demand is elastic,
inelastic or unit elastic. 1 < |??| < ∞ |??| = 1 0 < |??|
< 1 2)
2, What happens to the absolute value of the price elasticity of
demand as you move up a demand curve?

As you move up along the demand curve, the price elasticity of
demand:
Select one:
a. Becomes more inelastic
b. Is unchanged
c. Becomes infinite
d. Becomes more elastic
e. Falls to zero

Relationship between total revenue and price
elasticity of demand and explain how even due to good weather some
farmers are worse off?

When the magnitude of the price elasticity of demand at a point
along the linear demand curve for a product is equal to the unit,
then this magnitude is higher at any higher price and lower at any
lower price.
