A battery of emf 10 v and internal resistance 3 omega is connected to a resistor. The current in the circuit is 0.5A. The terminal voltage of the battery when the circuit is closed is?


EMF of battery=10v

Internal rssitance of battery, r=3 ohms

Current in the circuit, I=0.5A

Resistanc of the resistor=R

By Ohm’s law, we know;

I = E/(R+r)

So, R=17 ohms

The terminal voltage of the resistor=V

Ohm’s law states:


So, V= 8.5V
