True or False: While discharging, the terminal voltage of a battery can never greater than the emf of the battery.

To determine
Whether the statement is true or false.


Terminal voltage is measured across the terminal of a battery. It is the output voltage of the battery. It is the difference between the electromotive force of the battery and the internal resistance of the battery.

Emf is the potential difference of the battery when no current is flowing. Battery has internal resistance. When the circuit is open no current flows from the battery. So, the emf of the battery is the same as terminal voltage...
