Elasticity of Demand
The relationship between the
percentage change in quantity
demanded and the percentage
change in price.
Elastic Demand
% change in Qd > % change in P
Inelastic Demand
% change in Qd < % change in
price
Unit Elastic Demand
% change in Qd = % change in P
Factors that Determine Elasticity
Goods May Be More Elastic When:

Number of Substitutes

Luxuries v. Necessities

% of Income Spent On the Good

Time

or unit-elastic. Also determine change in revenue.
