Defining the

Production Function

The formula can be read since " quantity of

quantity

result is a function of the inputs

listed inside the parentheses”

Q = f (L, T, M…)

where

Q sama dengan quantity of end result

L = quantity of labor input

E = volume of capital input

y

M = level of materials suggestions

Short-run production function:

involves by least one fixed type

Long-run

Long term production function:

production procedure in which almost all

inputs are variable

TP improves rapidly approximately level of

slower level as labor input raises

TP contour becomes flatter and more shapely

until it actually reaches maximum output

level for L3

Competition implies that little product

of labor 1st increases swiftly then

reduces, eventually getting

zero or less

AP and MEGA-PIXEL: Short-run

Creation Function

Between zero and L2, MEGA-PIXEL curve

is placed above AP curve, leading to AP

contour to increase

Listed below L2, MEGA-PIXEL curve is below AP

curve, causing AP competition to

reduce

Therefore , MEGA-PIXEL curve must

intersect AP curve in maximum

point of AP curve
