  • 3. ISOQUANTISOQUANT
  • 4. ISOQUANT- ISOCOST ANALYSISISOQUANT- ISOCOST ANALYSIS • Isoquant • A line indicating the level of inputs required to produce a given level of output • Iso- meaning - ‘Equal’ • -’Quant’ as in quantity • Isoquant – a line of equal quantity
  • 5. ISOQUANTSISOQUANTS • An isoquant curve shows variousAn isoquant curve shows various combinations of two input factors such ascombinations of two input factors such as capital and labour , which yield the samecapital and labour , which yield the same level of output.level of output. • An isoquant curve represent all suchAn isoquant curve represent all such combinations which yield equal quantity ofcombinations which yield equal quantity of the output and any or every combination isthe output and any or every combination is a good combination of the manufacture.a good combination of the manufacture. • Since he prefers all these combinationSince he prefers all these combination equally, an isoquant curve is also calledequally, an isoquant curve is also called “product indifference curve”“product indifference curve”

  • 9. Features of ISOQUANTSFeatures of ISOQUANTS • DOWNWARD SLOPING:DOWNWARD SLOPING: • An isoquant must slopeAn isoquant must slope downwoards from left to rightdownwoards from left to right • Which implies that using moreWhich implies that using more of one input to produce theof one input to produce the same level of output must implysame level of output must imply using less of the other inputsusing less of the other inputs
  • 10. • CONVEX TO ORIGIN:CONVEX TO ORIGIN: • Isoquants are convex to the orgine.Isoquants are convex to the orgine. • It is because the input factors are notIt is because the input factors are not perfect substitutes.perfect substitutes. • One input factor can be substituted byOne input factor can be substituted by another input factor in a “another input factor in a “diminishingdiminishing marginal ratemarginal rate”” • If the input factors were perfectIf the input factors were perfect substitutes, the isoquant would be asubstitutes, the isoquant would be a fallingfalling straight linestraight line..

  • 14. McGraw-Hill/Irwin © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., All Rights Reserved. DO NOT INTERSECT: Two isoquants do not intersect. It is because each of these denote a particular level of output. If a manufacturer wants to operate at a higher level of output, he has to switch over to another isoquants with a higher level of output.
