The Law of demand and its determinants

The Law of demand can be stated in this manner: When price of a product or service increases, quantity demanded for the product or service decreases. There is an inverse relationship between the price and quantity demanded, i.e., when one variable (price) increases, the other variable (quantity demanded) decreases and vice versa.

The determinants of demand are income, price of a complement, price of a substitute good, taste or preferences, expectation, income, and population.
