A Short Circuit • When a connection of a very low or zero resistance is made between two points in a circuit, then we have what is called a short circuit. The wire is shorting out the battery. • A 3V battery with 1 Ω internal resistance generates a short circuit current of 3A. This is the maximum possible current that this battery can produce.
