TOTAL PHYSICAL PRODUCT: The total quantity of output produced by a firm for a given quantity of inputs. Total physical product is actually nothing more than a fancy term for total product. The additional of the second term physical merely keeps the phrase consistent with average physical product and marginal physical product, two terms useful in marginal productivity theory and the analysis of factor demand. However, average physical product and marginal physical product are really just average product and marginal product.

UNPLANNED INVESTMENT: Investment expenditures that the business sector undertakes apart from those they intend to undertake based on expected economic conditions, interest rates, sales, and profitability. Another term for unplanned investment is change in inventories, which result when aggregate expenditures differ from aggregate output. Unplanned investment can be either positive or negative, meaning business inventories can either rise or fall. Should unplanned investment occur, then actual and planned investment differ, aggregate expenditures are not equal to aggregate output, and the macroeconomy is not in equilibrium.

AVERAGE FACTOR COST, PERFECT COMPETITION

Total factor cost per unit of factor input employed by a perfectly competitive firm in the production of output, found by dividing total factor cost by the quantity of factor input. Average factor cost, abbreviated AFC, is generally equal to the factor price. However, using the longer term average factor cost makes it easier to see the connection to related terms, including total factor cost and marginal factor cost.
