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.
