The internal resistance of one of the 12 V batteries is 0.05 ohm and the other has an internal resistance of 0.15 ohm. When the two batteries are connected in parallel with the load that has a resistance of 0.5 ohm, the internal resistance of the batteries is not relevant while estimating the current that flows through the load.

The current flowing through the load is given by I = V/r = 12/0.5 = 24 A

**A current of 24 A flows through the load with a resistance of 0.5 ohm.**
