Fixed input and variable input, Microeconomics

Fixed input and variable input:

A fixed input is that input whose quantity cannot be varied in the short-run when demand conditions require an increase or a decrease in production e.g. factory building, capital equipment, some skilled labour, etc. a variable input on the other hand is that where quantity can be changed in all times of production when demand conditions change to require a change in production e.g. raw materials, electrical power, unskilled labour, etc.
