Arc elasticity, Microeconomics

Arc Elasticity is defined below:

Arc elasticity measures/calculates the "average" elasticity between two points on the demand curve. The formula is simply given as (change in quantity/change in price)*(average price/average quantity).

As:

 

? = ? Q  ÷   ? P

        Q           P

 

To measure arc elasticity we take average values for both Q and P respectively.
