In general terms, elasticity is the amount of stretch that an object contains. It is property by virtue of which matter keeps its shape from deforming into another.

When an external force is applied to an object the size and shape of the object may change, for example, an appropriate force is applied to a spring can elongate it. If the force ceases to act the object may restore to its original size and shape. An object is said to be elastic if it restores its original size and shape. This property of an object is known as elasticity.

In Economics, elasticity refers to the sensitivity of one variable to changes in a different variable. How much more of a product consumers will purchase when the price of that product falls is a specific example of economic elasticity.

The elasticity of demand refers to how sensitive the demand for a good is to changes in other economic variables. The different types are: price elasticity, income elasticity, cross elasticity and advertisement elasticity.

Gum has elasticity.

1)price elasticity of demand 2)income elasticity of demand 3)cross elasticity of demand

No, there is no elasticity in cotton at all

Yes elasticity affects it. It is increasing with the elasticity.

Arc elasticity is used to measure the elasticity at the midpoint of two different points. Point elasticity on the other hand, is used to measure the elasticity of demand at a particular point of the demand curve. Point elasticity can also measure the elasticity between two points of a demand curve.

Would the concepts of cross elasticity of demand and income elasticity of demand be of any interest to a pharmaceutical company?

Unitary elasticity is when the price elasticity of demand is exactly equal to one.

there are broadly classified into five types 1. Perfect price elasticity of demand 2. Perfect price in-elasticity of demand 3. Relative price elasticity of demand 4. Relative price in-elasticity of demand 5. Unity price elasticity of demand

Elasticity of demand measures how consumers react to a change in price, while elasticity of supply measures how firms will react to change in price

distinguish between price elasticity of demand and income elasticity of demand

There is a difference between elasticity and flexibility. Elasticity is the ability to stretch and flexibility is the ability to bend.

Arch elasticity demand is the percentage change in one variable divided by the percentage change in another variable, it calculates the elasticity over a range of values, while point elasticity of demand uses differential calculus to determine the elasticity at a specific point
