1 Lecture 16 Real batteries Real batteries. Kirchhoff’s rules. DC instruments. ACT: Mixed circuit Three identical bulbs are connected to an ideal battery as shown below. When the switch is closed, bulb 1 is __________ and bulb 2 is _________. 1 A. dimmer, dimmer B. dimmer, the same C. brighter, dimmer 2 3 V 0 1 2 3 Resistance here decreases I 1 0 Current 1 increases Bulb 1 is brighter Total resistance decreases 2 (= 0 1 R ) decreases Bulb 2 is dimmer Real batteries Batteries have wires and other parts with a certain resistance r (= internal resistance) Model of a non-ideal battery A B ε r = EMF (electromotive force) = voltage produced by the chemical reaction (or by whatever the battery is made of)

2 Real vs ideal batteries Ideal battery A B ε r Constant voltage output V A –V B = Real battery ( > 0) ( = 0) i.e., on the circuit Voltage output depends on the current A B = ±–Ir And… power dissipation inside the battery Example: Circuit with real battery a. What do the voltmeter and the ammeter read when the switch is open?
