1. A high resistance voltmeter records the potential difference across a battery which is connected to a variable resistor of resistance R,

The reading on the voltmeter, V, takes the following values: V=V𝟢 when R=R𝟢 and V=V𝟣 when R=R𝟣,

calculate the internal resistance r
2. I presume you are being asked to derive the equation for internal resistance from V𝟢 R𝟢 V𝟣 R𝟣,
Internal resistance of a battery is imagined as a resistor in series with the battery. So using Ohms law and equation for resistors in series, r can be calculated.
3. yes, but I cant seem to get the right answer when doing this
