What is the elasticity of the demand curve in a perfectly competitive market and why?

 perfecly elastic demand because here the price remains fixed and the demand can change here the price shows the marginal revenue as well as average revenue and also the demand it is always a horizontal straight line parellel to ox axis

reason ;- 
any slight change in the price of good will leads to infinite change in demand . So it is called perfectly competitive firm where change in price is least possible and if changes it will give a disastrous consequence
