Point versus Arc Elasticity Elasticity, or the degree of responsiveness of consumers to price changes, is usually different for each price level. Elasticity is therefore ideally measured at a particular price, or at a particular point on the demand curve. This is called point elasticity. '^ An alternative measure, arc elasticity, c a n be used to approximate the value of the point elasticity. This measures the responsiveness of consumers over a short segment of a demand curve, rather than at a particular point.

The prices of the inputs or factors of production; 2. changes in technology related to the production of the specific good; 3. time available to adjust to changes in the commodity's price. ^ If the price of labour, raw materials, electrical power, or manufac­ turing equipment should increase, manufacturers would find that the production cost per unit would also increase and they would be willing to offer fewer units at any given price. This situation is represented by a leftward or inward shift of the supply curve, as illustrated in Figure 3 .

4. T h e total market demand for a commodity is found by adding the quantity demanded at each price by each consumer in the market. 5. T h e elasticity of demand for a good, with respect to price, is de­ fined as the percentage change in quantity demanded divided by the percentage change in price. W h e n £ ^ < 1, demand is inelastic; when £ ^ > 1, demand is elastic; and when £ ^ = 1, demand is of unitary elasticity. W h e n total revenue increases as price increases, the demand is inelastic; but if total revenue falls, the demand is elastic.
