Aniko Oery University of California, Berkeley Section 11: Long-run competitive equilibrium Econ 100A, MICRO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS, Spring 2010 1 Long-run competitive equilibrium Remember from class that you need to solve the following system of three equations with the three unknown ( P, Q, N ) in order to find the long-run competitive equilibrium: 1. profit maximization: MC ( Q ) = P 2. zero profit: P · Q - TC ( Q ) = 0 3. quantity demanded is equal to quantity supplied (market clearing): D ( P ) = N · Q . 2 Practice Problem from the 3rd edition of the textbook ”Microeconomics” by Bersanko and Braeutigam The long-run average cost for production of hard-disk drives is given by AC ( Q ) = wr (120 - 20 Q + Q 2 ) , where Q is annual output of a firm, w is the wage rate for skilled assembly labor, and r is the price of capital services. The corresponding long-run marginal cost curve is MC ( Q ) = wr (120 - 40 Q + 3 Q 2 ) . The demand for labor for an individual firm is L ( Q, w, r ) = r (120 Q - 20 Q 2 + Q 3 ) 2 w .

### 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.

• 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.

• 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.
