Downward Sloping Curve Template for PowerPoint
Free Downward Sloping Curve Template for PowerPoint is a simple design for PowerPoint presentations that you can download to model a demand curve or yield curve with a downward slopping.
Inside this free curve template for PowerPoint you can find two slide designs. The first one includes a nice downward sloping curve design with 5 segments and editable text boxes that you can use to describe up to five phases of a shrinking business, a demand model or any other falling graph.
The second slides includes a variant of the previous falling graph in PowerPoint with a highlighted area grouping two phases. This slide also have 5 segments and editable text boxes.
The Downward Sloping Demand Curve
This kind of falling curves is widely used for example in Supply and Demand in an economic model or price determination in a market. A demand curve is downward sloping from left to right because of the inverse relationship between the price and the quantity demanded in a market. Consumers consume more of a given commodity at a lower price.
The main reasons why the demand curve is downward sloping can be summarized in:
- Increasing marginal utility. As more of a commodity is consumed then the consumer gets lesser satisfaction with the successive unit consumed.
- The Income effect. More the income then more will be the commodity consumed.
- The Substitution effect. If there is no other substitute of a commodity available to the consumer then he has no choice but to consume that product.
- The number of consumers.
In a downward sloping demand curve when price falls then demand extends and as price rises the demand contracts.
