Question

If you connect a resistor to a battery with a given emf, the measured terminal voltage is V. Next you connect in parallel another resistor to the first one. As a result,

- The terminal voltage increases;
- The terminal voltage decreases;
- The terminal voltage depends only on the internal resistance of the battery and doesn’t depend on a load.

Answer #1

The measured terminal voltage is equal to E - IR

where

E = emf

I = current drawn from the battery

R = internal resistance of the battery.

When another resistor is connected across the load, the equivalent resistance decreases. This will increase the current drawn from the battery. Which will also increase the voltage drop across the internal resistance of the battery. Therefore, the measured terminal voltage (E - IR) decreases.

**Therefore, the correct option will be option
B.**

Suppose you have three identical lightbulbs, some wire, and a
battery. You connect one lightbulb to the battery and take note of
its brightness. You add a second lightbulb, connecting it in
parallel with the previous lightbulbs, again take note of the
brightness. Repeat the process with the third lightbulb, connecting
it in parallel with the other two. As the lightbulbs are added, how
are the following properties affected? (Neglect the battery's
internal resistance)
