Textbook Problem

A battery with an emf of 12.0 V has a terminal voltage of 11.5 V when the current is 3.00 A (a) Calculate the battery’s internal resistance r. (b) Find the load resistance R.

(a)

To determine
The battery’s internal resistance.

Explanation

Given Info: The emf of the battery is 12.0 V, terminal potential difference is 11.5 V, and current through the circuit is 3.00 A.

Explanation:

The terminal potential difference is related with the emf and internal resistance of the

Battery is,

ΔV=εIr

  • I is the current through the circuit,
  • ΔV is the potential difference across the battery,
  • ε is the emf of the battery,
  • r is the internal resistance of the battery,

Rewrite the above relation in terms of internal resistance.

Ir=ΔVεIr=εΔVr=εΔVI

Substitute 12

(b)

To determine
The load resistance of the battery.
