Economic depreciation vs. accounting depreciation

  1. Are we expected to calcuate economic depreciation or is it a concept… 2) what is the difference… thoughts? Thanks

Accounting depreciation is strictly calculated on the basis of estimated useful life and asset’s consumption whereas economic dep’n would measure real usage of capital taking into account its productivity… Am I right? I don’t think we would be required to calculate it…

economic depreciation = change in market value of capital

Is this a value that could be asked to be calculated?

Is that a difficult calculation? Beg. Value - Ending Value.
