What is internal resistance?

Open in App
Solution

Internal resistance is the resistance within a battery, or other voltage sources, that causes a drop in the source voltage when there is a current. A cell can be thought of as a source of e.m.f. with a resistor connected in series. When current flows through the cell a voltage develops across the internal resistance.
