DEMAND
For individual, distinguish between Quantity demanded The amount of a good or service that a consumer is willing and able to purchase at a given price during a specified period of time, ceteris paribus. Demand schedule Table showing quantity demanded corresponding to different prices. Inverse demand curve Graph of the schedule data Demand equation Specifies the functional arguments of quantity demanded

Demand Schedule - Example Qd/ t P/ unit 10 \$1.00 8 \$1.20 6 \$1.40 4 \$1.60 2 \$1.80
Demand Curve – Ex: linear Quantity/time P = slope*Q + vertical intercept = ( ΔP/ ΔQ)*Q + VI = -0.10*Q + 2

Demand Curve – Ex: non-linear P/unit Qd/t \$2.00 0 \$1.67 2 \$1.43 4 \$1.25 6 \$1.11 8 \$1.00 10 Qd/t P = ((1/20)*Q + (1/2)) -1 ln(P) = - ln ((1/20)*Q + (1/2))
Law of Demand As price increases, quantity demanded decreases, ceteris paribus. Implies a downward-sloping demand curve (negative slope) dQd/dP <0 (more appropriately, ∂Qd/∂P <0)

Market Demand Curve: Horizontal Summation of Individual Demands P/unit Qd/t \$2.00 0 \$1.80 20 \$1.60 40 \$1.40 60 \$1.20 80 \$1.00 100 Q D /t P = 2 – 0.01*Q D Example: ten identical individuals …
Demand Equation Q D = f(P|Ps, Pc, Y, U, E, Pop ) Ex: linear in own price, holding all else constant Q D = γ + β 1 P 1 <0) Ex: linear in own price, prices of related goods, and income , holding utility, population size and expectations constant Q D = α + β 1 P + β 2 Ps + β 3 Pc + β 4 Y

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
