Can anyone help me out with a couple quite similar questions for physics:

1 - a battery of emf 4v and internal resistance of 1 ohm is connected to a 9 ohm resistor. Calculate the current that flows around the circuit.

2 - 3 identical cells each of emf 2v and internal resistance 0.5 ohm are connected in series to a lamp of resistance 2.5 ohm. What current flows?

I just can’t work out if the internal resistance affects the current. Is the r in v=ir just external resistance or external plus internal?

it's internal plus external resistance
