What is the internal resistance of a cell if a current of 0.9 A flows through a 2 ohm resistor and a current of 0.3 A through a 7 ohm resistor?
For a cell with an internal resistance of Rc, if it is connected to a resistor with resistance R, the current I that flows through R and the voltage of the cell V are related by:
V = (Rc + R)*I ... (1)
