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 ...

Solution Summary

The solution answers the question below in great detail.

To insure a point of stableequilibrium, the necessary and sufficient conditions on the potential energy of a physical system, U = U(x), are that dU/dx = 0. What does the second derivative at that point have to be?

There are at least two ways to describe the necessary conditions for oscillatory system behavior. Explain two of them.
My thoughts: I've heard of using displacement as the variable and using angular movement as the variable, but I am having a hard time confirming this/visualizing this theory. Would someone be able to confirm

In any strategic game:
a. different strategies result in different payoffs.
b. each player is aware of all prior moves.
c. the allocation of positive payoffs is an equilibrium outcome.
d. multiple equilibrium outcomes are stable.

Compounds A and B are in equilibrium. For the reaction A --> B, E_s is 15 kcal/mol (62.8 kj/mol) and delta H in degrees is 12 kcal/mol (50.2 kj/mol). Draw a reaction profile diagram for this equilibrium. What are the E_s and delta H in degrees values for the reaction B --> A? What are the percentages of A and B in the reaction m

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
