    Elasticity and Demand

    Elasticity is the relative responsiveness of one variable to changes in another variable. Economists find this notion of elasticity quite useful in the study of markets. In this lesson, we examine the basics of demand elasticity, especially the price elasticity of demand.

    • The first unit of this lesson, An Overview, gets us started with a review of several concepts related to elasticity and demand.
    • In the second unit, The Continuum, we take a close look at how the five elasticity alternatives are reflected by demand curves.
    • The third unit, Measurement, runs through some numbers for measuring the price elasticity of demand, and how elasticity values related to a straightline demand curve.
    • The fourth unit, Determinants, examines how the three determinants of elasticity affect the elasticity coefficient.
    • The fifth unit and final unit, Other, closes this lesson by introducing examine three related elasticity measures.
