MINICASE 1 1. Metaland is a major manufacturer of light commercial vehicles. It has a very strong R&D centre which has developed very successful models in the last fifteen years. However, two models developed by it in the last few years have not done well and were prematurely withdrawn from the market. The engineers at its R&D centre have recently developed a prototype for a new light commercial vehicle that would have a capacity of 4 tons. After a lengthy discussion, the board of directors of Metaland decided to carefully evaluate the financial worthwhileness of manufacturing this model which they have labeled Meta 4. You have been recently hired as the executive assistant to Vijay Mathur, Managing Director of Metaland. Vijay Mathur has entrusted you with the task of evaluating the project. Meta 4 would be produced in the existing factory which has enough space for one more product. Meta 4 will require plant and machinery that will cost Rs.400 million. You can assume that the outlay on plant and machinery will be incurred over a period of one year. For the sake of simplicity assume that 50 percent will be incurred right in the beginning and the balance 50 percent will be incurred after 1 year. The plant will commence operation after one year. Meta 4 project will require Rs.200 million toward gross working capital. You can assume that gross working capital investment will occur after 1 year. The proposed scheme of financing is as follows : Rs.200 million of equity, Rs.200 million of term loan, Rs.100 million of working capital advance, and Rs.100 million of trade credit. Equity will come right in the beginning by way of retained earnings. Term loan and working capital advance will be raised at the end of year 1. The term loan is repayable in 8 equal semi-annual instalments of Rs.25 million each. The first instalment will be due after 18 months of raising the term…...

Pure, Pure Se, and Natural Monopolies

...Microeconomics Unit 4 IP Pure, Per Se, and Natural Monopolies September 16, 2012 Krugman stated, “Externalities are actions that create side effects that are not properly taken into account. Externalities are one of the principal sources of market failure” (p.434). Two policies that can be used to reduce the total amount of emissions is emission taxes and tradable permits. Krugman stated, “Emissions tax is a tax that is charged depending on the amount of pollution a factory produces” (p.442). Factories are taxed on every unit of pollution produced. The benefit of charging an emission tax is you are giving the factory reason to reduce pollution. They are paying for or being taxed for every unit of pollution they produce. The factory can impose the tax on the consumer, which in turn will decrease supply. When prices are increased, the market quantity or quantity being produced is decreased. Emission tax will decrease the marginal social cost because less pollution will be released. That leaves less cost to the society to clean it up. The marginal social benefit on the other hand will increase because the marginal social cost is decreased. The marginal social benefit is increased because of the money that the society is saved from decrease in the marginal social cost. Therefore, creating the optimal level of pollution. Emissions tax helps to solve the problem of economic inefficiency by allowing...

Viscosity of Pure Liquids and Solutions

...the samples used was such that the liquid level in the reservoir bulb was in the widest part, so that the change in height was minimized. The viscometer was then equilibrated with the sample in a thermostatted bath, with the consideration that the viscometer was mounted vertically. Using the aspirator, the liquid level was raised above the first bulb in the other arm and was then released. The time it took to fall from the upper to lower mark was measured. The bath temperature was recorded. Many trials in each run were employed until there’s an obtained three flow time with differences of 0.1 sec or less. For viscosity of pure liquids and solutions, the viscometer was calibrated using the general procedure. It was done with the use of water, acetone and ethyl acetate as the calibrating liquids. For the temperature dependence of viscosity using the pure test liquids which were methanol and 2-propanol, flow time runs were made at 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 °C. For the effect of concentration, binary solution of the test liquids and water of concentrations 0.10, 0.20, 0.40, 0.60, 0.80, and 0.95 mole fraction of solute were prepared. Each solution was subjected to the general procedure. Bath temperature was maintained at 300C. The density of each solution was determined using a pycnometer. For viscosity of polymer solution, a stock solution of sodium carboxymethylcellulose (NaCMC) was prepared by dissolving 5.00 grams NaCMC in 0.100M NaCl, and diluting it in a 250-mL......

Kant's Concept of Pure Reason

...German Philosophy: Kant’s concept of reason Critique of Pure Reason Prateek S Kolhar (EE10B109) 29th April 2014 1. Introduction During the period of enlightenment in Europe, there were 2 schools of thought that talked about the way we acquire knowledge: Rationalism and Empiricism. Rationalists like Leibniz claimed that knowledge is innate, that is, we are born with all the knowledge and the experiences that we have in this world just help us in uncovering/ remembering this knowledge. Empiricist believed that all knowledge is got only through experience in other words we are born with our minds/souls like a clean slate and the experiences write on them. With this struggle between the two schools of thought enlightenment Europe was striving to find ways to arrive at a consensus about some of these aforementioned central issues of theory of knowledge. And the champion of a philosopher who accomplished with task was Immanuel Kant. Kant borrowed many concepts from both empiricism and rationalism. But he felt that the many of the rationalist ideas were too simplistic and dogmatic and some of the empiricist ideas we too skeptic about the ability of humans to acquire true knowledge. As a part of his critical philosophy, with an aim to resolve this problem of theory of knowledge he wrote 3 critiques: Critique of pure reason, Critique of practical reason and Critique of judgment. Critique of Pure Reason talks about the process of knowledge acquisition in natural sciences, the way...

Pure Competition

...I will only show the analysis in the short run using pure competitive market. Here I will discuss the following : How to maximize profit , what if, price is greater that average total cost , price is equal to average total cost , price is greater than average variable cost and the decision of the firm whether shutdown or continue operating. To maximize profit we will use the marginal revenue equals marginal cost approach. (MR=MC) Natutunannatinnayung marginal revenue, itoyung additional revenue sapagproduceng additional quantity o karagdagangkitasapaggawangkaragdagangprodukto. Yung marginal cost namanitoyung additional cost sapagproduceng additional quantity oyungkaragdaganggastossapaggawangkaragdagangprodukto.

Pure Monopoly

...In today’s society, there are many different monopolies that are still evident despite the perceived idea that pure monopolies do not exist. A monopoly is the complete control of the entire supply of goods or a service in a certain area or market. Although most firms have some type of competition, rare forms of pure monopoly exist in the business world in some of the biggest companies. Pure monopoly exists when a single firm is the sole producer of a product for which there are no close substitutes (Brue, 181). Even if firms are not competing directly with one another they are all competing to get the attention of the customers. While having a company, there is an expected amount of rivalry that comes along with it, but then again, in a pure monopoly there is no other competition because of the sole control over the sale or production of a certain product. A prime example of a pure monopoly is the post office. Being that they are the only mailing service that distribute mail to every house every day, exemplifies the rare form of monopoly that still occurs. The market makes their decisions based off of supply and demand. If a company has an abundant supply of a product, simply lowering their price eliminates competition and gains the attention from desperate customers leading to a curve in the demand which results in a pure monopoly. However, the government has always tried to avoid monopolies since the 1890’s and 1900’s with the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Act that......

Pure Research

...What is Pure Research? - The term basic research refers to study and research that is meant to increase our scientific knowledge base. This type of research is often purely theoretical with the intent of increasing our understanding of certain phenomena or behavior but does not seek to solve or treat these problems. (By Kendra Cherry, Psychology Expert) - Pure research is research done simply to find out something by examining anything. For instance, in some pure scientific research scientists discover what properties various materials possess. It is not for the sake of applying those properties to anything in particular, but simply to find out what properties there are. Pure mathematics is for the sake of seeing what happens, not to solve a problem. The fun of pure research is that you are not looking for anything in particular. Instead, anything and everything you find may be joined with anything else just to see where that combination would lead, if anywhere. (Richard F. Taflinger, PhD) - Basic research (also called pure research, fundamental research, and discovery research) is a systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena. Basic research is executed without thought of a practical end goal, without specific applications or products in mind. (Wikipedia) Examples of Pure Research - Psychological studies of decision making that led to important finding in the fields of education,......

Buddhism Pure Land Essay

...AO1: “Examine the distinctive features of Pure Land Buddhism” Pure Land Buddhism offers a way to enlightenment for people who can’t handle the subtleties of meditation, endure long rituals, or just live especially good lives. The essential practice in Pure Land Buddhism is the chanting of the name Amitabha Buddha with total concentration, trusting that one will reborn in Pure Land, where it is much easier for a being to work towards enlightenment. Pure Land Buddhism is particularly popular in China and Japan. Pure Land Buddhism as a school of Buddhist thinking began in India around the 2nd century BCE. Tan Luan was the first master of Pure Land lineage. He had his religious calling while recovering from a serious illness. He said he saw a vision of a heavenly gate opening to him. The Bodhi taught T’an Luan the Amitabha texts. The Amitabha texts consists of writings about the Buddha Amitabha (known in Japan as Amida) who achieved Buddhahood on condition that he would receive all those who sincerely called upon him with faith and then he would admit them to a western paradise, a very pleasant place where they could continue their spiritual pursuits. Buddha can be earthly; Nirmanakaya; heavenly; sambhogakaya; and teachings; dharmakaya which together make the trikaya (three bodies). In Pure Land, Buddha is seen as a God but there is no God in Buddhism. By this, we can see that there have been influences from both Islam and Christianity as they both worship a ‘God’.......
