what does a straight line production possibilities frontier represent? what does a bowed outward PPF represent?

Essentially, they are the same. Both are representations of the production possibilities. Usually when the curve is straight, it can be an indicator that opportunity costs is constant (i.e. for every unit of good A that is added means a loss of 2 units of good B). But it really depends on the graph was set up. Hope this helps
