A cell is used to send current to an external circuit. (a) How does the voltage across its terminals compare with its e.m.f? (b) under what condition is the e.m.f of a cell equal to its terminal
A cell of e.m.f. 1.8V and internal resistance 2Ω is connected in series with an ammeter of resistance 0.7Ω and a resistor of 4.5Ω as shown in Fig. 8.41
(a) what would be the reading of the ammeter?
(b) what is the potential difference across the terminals of the cell?
A battery of e.m.f. 15 V and internal resistance 3 ohm is connected to two resistors of resistances 3 ohm and 6 ohm is series Find:
(a) the current through the battery
(b) the p.d. between the terminals of the battery.
A cell of e.m.f. ε and internal resistance 𝔯 sends current 1.0 A when it is connected to an external resistance 1.9Ω. But it sends current 0.5 A when it is connected to an external resistance 3.9 Ω.
Calculate the values of ε and 𝔯.
The diagram below in Fig. 8.40 shows a cell of e.m.f. ε = 2 volt and internal resistance r = 1 ohm to an external resistance R = 4 ohm. The ammeter A measures the current in the circuit and the
voltmeter V measures the terminal voltage across the cell. What will be the readings of the ammeter and voltmeter when (i) the key K is open, (ii) the key K is closed.
A battery of e.m.f 3.0 V supplies current through a circuit in which the resistance can be changed.
A high resistance voltmeter is connected across the battery. When the current is 1.5 A, the voltmeter reads 2.7 V. Find the internal resistance of the battery.
