Bada Bing,Ltd. supplies standard 256 MB RAM chips to the US computer and electronics industry. Like the output of its competitors, Bada Bings Chips must meet strict size,shape,and speed, specifications. As a result the chip supply industry can be regarded as perfectly competitive. The total cost and marginal cost functions for Bada Bing are
TC=$1,000,00 + $20Q = $0.0001Q(square) Don't have the option to add the 2 above Q
MC = (Triangle) TC/TriangleQ= 420 = $0.0002Q

Where Qis the number of chips produced. Total costs include a normal profit.
A. Calculate bad Bing's Optimal Output and profits if chip prices are stable at $60 each
B. Calculate Bada Bings' Optimal output and profits if chip prices fall to $30. each
C. If Ba bing is typical of firms in the industry, calculate the firm's long-run equilibrium output, price and economic profit levels.

Answer
A Q=200,000, (PIE) = $3,000,000
B Q=50,000, (Pie) =-$750,000 (a Loss)
C Q=100,000, P=$40, Pie=$0

Answer A:
For profit maximization MR = P = MC
Here MC = 20 + 0.0002Q
P = 60
Equating the two we get:
20 + 0.0002Q = 60
=> Q = 200,000
At this point profit = TR - TC
= 60X200,000 - 1,000,000 - 20x200,000 ...

Need help with this problem:
Consider a positive point charge.
i) Give an example of how you might place two other point charges so that the net force on the initial charge is zero.
ii) If the net force on the charge is zero then this charge is in equilibrium. The equilibrium will be stable if, when the charge is displace

Following is the problem that I solved the first part:
Consider the system x' = f(x), where f: R^2 into R^2, is defined by:
f(x) = [ (x1)^3 + (x1) (x2)^2 ]
[ (x1)^2 (x2) + (x2)^3 ]
a- Find all equilibrium points of the system.
b- Use an appropriate Lyapunov function to determine the stability of the equilibr

Use separation of variables to solve to the ODE:
N ̇=〖{k〗_+-k_- ln〖(N)}N〗;k_+,k_- and t>0;N(0)= N_0>0.
Hint: Use u = ln(N) for u-substitution.
Substitute your solution into the differential equation and show that it is in fact the solution.
Evaluate your solution for N(t) as t→∞ .
For what va

Carefully explain what will happen as we move from the short run to a long run equilibrium in a monopolistically competitive industry if firms are making a positive profit in the short run. Your explanation should clearly state what will happen to the demand curve facing an individual firm and the reason why this happens.

A pendulum is modeled by a mass m, attached to one end of a light rod of lenght l, whose other end is attached to an axis. Write down the equation of motion (Newton's Law) modeling the pendulum. Rewrite the model as a system of two first order equations for the position and velocity of the mass. Find the equilibrium points an
