20.9 Internal Resistance So far we’ve just considered batteries and generators as contributing their emf to a circuit. In reality, they too have some resistance. This is called internal resistance, r . In batteries it’s due to the chemicals, and in generators it’s due to wire resistance. So, if a battery is connected to a load resistor, R , then the internal resistance, r , is in series with the load: Notice: R and r are in series! Thus, the voltage across the battery (known as the terminal voltage, VT ) is less than the full voltage V , since some is lost across r . VT Thus, r T V V V - = Terminal voltage Battery voltage Voltage drop across the internal resistance, r
Kirchhoff’s Rules In many circuits, applying the series or parallel methods is not sufficient to analyze them. There are two other rules we can use called Kirchhoff’s Rules : 1. Junction Rule – Current into a junction has to equal current out. It is based on conservation of charge. I flows into junction, and I 1 and I 2 flow out, thus: I I2 I1 2 1 I I I + = 2. Loop Rule – Around any closed circuit loop, the sum of the potential (voltage) drops has to equal the sum of the potential rises.
