A cell balances against a length of 200 cm on a potentiometer wire, when it is shunted by a resistance of 8Ω. The balancing length reduces by 40 cm, when it is shunted by a resistance of 4 Ω . Calculate the balancing length when the cell is in open circuit. Also calculate the internal resistance of the cell.
