BID-RENT CURVE: A line or curve that shows the relation between the rent economic activities are willing to pay for land (bid-rent) and the distance of the land from the point of attraction (such as the cent of a city). The bid-rent curve has a negative slope because the activities balance the bid-rent with the cost of transportation to the point of attraction. Farther distances require greater transportation cost and thus reduce the amount of rent that can be paid. The bid-rent curve indicates why rents, and by inference land values, tend to be higher near central locations.

N: The standard abbreviation for the quantity of land resources, especially for the analysis of production. The letter "N" is used even though land begins with an "L" because "L" is used to represent labor. The complementary representations for other inputs are "L" for labor and "K" for capital.

TOTAL VARIABLE COST CURVE

A curve that graphically represents the relation between total variable cost incurred by a firm in the short-run production of a good or service and the quantity produced. When constructing this curve, it is assumed that total variable cost changes as a result of changes in the quantity of output produced, while other variables like technology and resource prices are held fixed. The total variable cost curve is one of three total cost curves, the other two are total cost curve and total fixed cost curve.
