Integrated Concepts

A 12.0-V emf automobile battery has a terminal voltage of 16.0 V when being charged by a current of 10.0 A. (a) What is the battery’s internal resistance? (b) What power is dissipated inside the battery? (c) At what rate (in °C/min ) will its temperature increase if its mass is 20.0 kg and it has a specific heat of 0.300 kcal/kg. °C, assuming no heat escapes?

To determine


Rate of the increase of the temperature.



Specific heat = 0.300

Mass of the body = 20 kg.

Formula used:

Used formula:

Q=mcT , Q = amount of heat, m = mass of the object, c = specific heat, T = change in temperature.
