Unformatted text preview: 2. The internal resistance of the battery is approximately 0.8375 ohms. 3. The y-intercept of this line, or E=1.3661. 4. The percentage difference from the actual EMF of the battery is (abs(1.35- 1.3661)/1.3661)*100= 0.0118 % 8.1.2 Batteries in Series I 1. V=E-Ir r = {(V-E)/I} r = (4.08 V- 4.31 V)/ 0.08A = 2.8 2. E = E1+E2+E3 = 1.33 V+1.48 V+1.47 V = 4.28 V 3. Percent Difference = {abs(E-E)/E}x100 % {abs(4.31 V-4.28 V)/4.28 V}x100% = 0.7 % 4. Internal resistance combined (r) = 2.8 Individual battery resistance (2.8 /3) = 0.93 0.8375 was what was found in 8.1.1, which differs by 0.093 , which seems to be consistent on how the resistance of the batteries also add up. 8.1.3 Batteries in Series II 1. V=E-Ir r = {(V-E)/I} r = (1.26 V- 1.35 V)/ 0.027A = 3.33 The combined total resistance of the batteries is 3.33 ohms. 2. E1= 1.33 V E2=1.48 V E3=-1.47 V E(total)=1.33 V+1.48 V+(-1.47 V)=1.34 V 3. Percent Difference = {abs(E-E)/E}x100 % {abs(1.35 V-1.34V)/1.34 V}x100% = 0.75 %{abs(1....
