    Does anyone know how to do these:

    A cell of e.m.f. 1.5 V and internal resistance 2.5 Ohms is connected to a resistor of 3.5 Ohms. Find the current in the circuit.

    When a battery of e.m.f. 3 V is connected to a resistor, the current taken from the battery is 2 A. If the internal resistance of the battery is 1 Ohm, find the value of the resistor.

    1) I = V/R = 1.5/(2.5+3.5) = 0.25 A

    2) (1+r) = V/i = 3/2 = 1.5 => r = 1.5 - 1 = 0.5 Ohm
