# two batteries A and B each of emf 2volt are connected in series to an external resistance R=1 ohm. if the internal resistance of battery A is 1.9 ohm and that of B is 0.9 ohm.what is the potential difference between the terminals of battery A?

The circuit diagram can be drawn as:
using the Kirschoff's Loop law:
I + 0.9I -2 + 1.9I - 2 = 0
I = 4/3.8 A
thus potential drop across 1.9 ohm resistor: 1.9 * 4/3.8 = 2 V
hence the potential difference of battery A in the circuit will  be: 0 V

# A cell of emf E and internal resistance r is connected to two external resistance R1 and R2 and a perfect ammeter.The current in the circuit is measured in four different situation: (i)without any external resistance in the circuit (ii)with resistance R1 only (iii)with Ri and R2 in series combination (iv)with R1 and R2 in parallel combination The currents measured in the four cases are 0.42A,1.05A,1.4A and 4.2A,but not necessarily in that order.Identify the currents corresponding to the four cases mentioned above.
