Which of the following will NOT be included in 2009 GDP?
A. The value of lawn mower engines that Briggs and Stratton made in 2009
The graph above shows the aggregate demand function. The potential GDP is 50 units
and the marginal propensity to consume is 0.90. Wages and prices are fu

Shown below are the isothermal transformation diagram (TTT) and continuous cooling transf
b.II) Yield point will decrease after recrystallization due to annihilation of dislocations. Ductility will increase,
again due to decrease in dislocation density. Compared to the first sample, this sample will now exhibit lower

Consider the hypothetical loanable funds market shown in the graph above. What will happen in
this market if market participants revise their forecasts of future inflation up
The graph above shows four aggregate demand (AD) functions. Currently Y = YP =
10,000 and P = 100. What will be the new short-run P and Y in the rational-expectations
model if the Fed unexpectedly increases the money supply by 4%?
D. The aggregate demand function would shift to AD2, the economy would immediately
move to a point like E2, and the price level would increase by 5%.
E. None of the above.
Consider the above graph and assume that the economy is initially at po

Shown below is a part of the nickel(Ni)-niobium(Nb) phase diagram.
a) What is the melting point of Nb?
From phase diagram, 2469oC

The graph above shows the labor market in a country. The horizontal axis measures the number
of workers. The natural rate of unemployment is 5%. Suppose that the real wage equals 7. Ho
The body diagonal is a3 long, which is also equal to 4R, where R is the radius of the atom. Therefore,
R= a3/4. We know a=0.5321nm. From there, R=(0.5321nm) 3/4 = 0.2304 nm
