## What design characteristics determine the voltage and the current capacity of a battery?

Expert Solution
To determine

The design characteristic used to demonstrate the voltage and current capacity of a battery.

### Explanation of Solution

The voltage and current capacity of a battery depend on the number of cells a battery has as each cell in a battery provide some amount of current. Thus, to provide a higher battery voltage and current, different design methods were used. They are:

Series connection:

In a series connection, the cells are connected in series to provide higher voltage in a battery. In this type of connection, the positive terminal of one cell is connected to a negative terminal of another and so on...
