what is potential difference and where does it occur .what is the difference between e.m.f and P.D

Expert Answer:

The potential difference can be measured between any two points on an electric circuit.

Emf is the potential difference between the terminals of a cell if the current drawn from it is zero.

A cell is bound to have some internal resistance so when current flows there is a potential drop of Ir across the cell and V = E -Ir.
