when n cells are connected in parallel , the emf of the combination remains equal to the emf of single cell.why?

Parallel combination is when positive plate of one cell is connected to positive plates of all the other cells and negative plate is connected to negative plates of all the other cells.
This combination can be viewed as one single positive plate on one side and one single negative plate on the other, i.e. positive plates connected together act as single positive plate and negative plates act like single negative plate.
Hence, the e.m.f. of cells connected in parallel is same as individual e.m.f. of each cell.

- what is meant by electric power
- You are given 48 cells each of 1.48 volt and resistance 0.3 ohm. How would you arrange them to produce greatest current in a circuit of 5 ohm resistance?
- Why we use a combination of cells?
- For the series combination of cells, derive the condition in which the current through externally connected resistance is maximum.
- Three identical cells, each of emf 2 V and internal resistance 0.2 ohm are connected in series to an external resistor of 5.4 ohm. Calculate the current in the circuit.
- In given circuit the cells E1 and E2 have emfs 4 V and 8 V and the internal resistance 0.5 ohm and 10 ohm respectively. Calculate the current in each resistance.
- In the circuit shown, each battery is of 5 V and has internal resistance of 0.2 ohm. What will be the reading of an ideal voltmeter connecting across the battery?
- In which condition, the cells connected in parallel has maximum current?
- In which condition, the current through the mixed grouping of cells is maximum?
