Enter the change in production and the change in capital units into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Marginal Product of Capital. 

Marginal Product of Capital Formula



  • MPOC is the Marginal Product of Capital (production/unit)
  • CP is the change in production
  • CC is the change in capital units

To calculate Marginal Product of Capital, divide the total change in production by the change in capital units.

How to Calculate Marginal Product of Capital?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Marginal Product of Capital.

  1. First, determine the change in production. 
  2. Next, determine the change in capital units. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = MPOC = CP / CC.
  4. Finally, calculate the Marginal Product of Capital.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

change in production = 300

change in capital units = 20
