In Economics Economic Profit is the difference between a company's Total Revenue & its Opportunity Costs where Revenue means income that a company receives from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers, and Opportunity Cost
or economic opportunity loss means is the value of the next best alternative or possibility that could have been chosen instead of the current process.

Economic. Profit:
It may be defined as the increase in wealth that an investor has from making an investment, taking into consideration of all the costs associated with that investment including the opportunity cost of the capital. If the opportunity cost of a decision is less than the revenue earned due to that decision then it represents a good choice of decision having a positive economic profit. Conversely if the opportunity cost exceeds the revenue generation that reflects an economically unprofitable decision bringing an economic loss

Accounting Profit:
A business is said to be making an accounting profit if its revenues exceeds the accounting cost of the firm. Conversely if the revenue generation falls down below its cost of bringing the product to market due to other economic activities, the business suffers an accounting loss.

Economic Profit:
At equilibrium condition, average cost equals marginal cost at the profit maximizing position as a result the economic profit would be zero as at equilibrium condition, there is no way to increase the profit. A positive economic profit happens when the firm's average cost is less than the price of product or services. The economic profit is equal to the quantity of output multiplied by the difference between the price and the opportunity cost of the product.
If the O.C.= opportunity cost, P= price, Q= quantity of the product, then
Economic profit, EP= (P-OC)xQ

Accounting Profit: A positive Accounting profit happens when the Average Cost of a product is less than the price of the product. If AP= accounting profit, and AC= average cost,then
Opportunity Cost, OC= (P-AC)xQ
