The following is the formula for Capacity Utilization: Capacity Utilization, CU = {(Actual Output - Potential Output) / Potential Output}. On the other hand, Capacity Utilization Rate, CUR = {(Actual Output - Potential O... More »

Buffering capacity is defined as the number of moles of strong base or acid needed to change the pH of a liter of buffer solution by one unit. A general buffer capacity estimate is 40 percent of the total sum of the mola... More »

Water-holding capacity is defined as the water retained between field capacity and wilting point. Field capacity is the saturated state of water in the soil that can drain freely due to the force of gravity. Wilting poin... More »

The equation for calculating capacity is the same as calculating volume, so the equation for the capacity of a cube, for example, is the measurement of one of the sides cubed. Volume is the measurement of the total capac... More »

A product's supply elasticity is determined by several factors, including the length of time to produce the good, availability of production inputs, ease of storage of the finished product, excess production capacity and... More »

The midpoint formula in economics is [(Q2 - Q1) / ((Q1 + Q2) / 2)] / [(P2 - P1) / ((P1 + P2) / 2)]. This formula represents the percent of change in quantity demanded over the percent change in price. More »

The opportunity cost formula is a simple solution to answer the age old question of whether a particular course of action is worth starting. Opportunity cost is the total sum of what a person or organization has after th... More »
