As assumed above, all workers inelastically
supply one unit of labor; therefore the full employment of skilled workers requires that
Assume also that each worker will supply inelastically
a unit of labor.
Because land is ultimately inelastically
supplied, this naturally creates a limit on the supply of new housing at construction costs.
Suppose that the government's budget is balanced initially and that a decision to subsidize kidney transplants requires the introduction of a tax on a relatively inelastically
If some of his workers are supplied inelastically
, the employer will try to pass on the costs by reducing other workers' average wage; or, if labor is supplied elastically, he will lay off nondisabled workers from jobs in which they would otherwise be efficiently employed.
This technology measures the wavelength and intensity of light inelastically
scattered by molecules.
Magnesium is a favorite for racing components because of its light weight and high stiffness-to-weight ratio, enabling it to resist deflection and absorb energy inelastically
Most of the light is scattered elastically (Rayleigh scatter), but a small fraction is scattered inelastically
The FME is defined as the displacement at which the structure starts to deform inelastically
(anticipated yield displacement).
Arab governments are almost inelastically
demanding close to $10 billion a year in telecommunications technology.
Neutrons can also scatter inelastically
, to reveal the magnetic fluctuation spectrum of a material over wide ranges of energy (from about [10.
109]Cd [Gamma]-rays can also elastically scatter off of the calcium and phosphorus (and, to a lesser extent, oxygen) atoms in bone and inelastically
scatter off all of the elements in the sample undergoing measurement (principally the bone, soft tissue, and skin).
