This is a virtual experiment to investigate the internal resistance of a single cell battery. The rheostat can be adjusted to vary the external resistance in the circuit and hence the current. Plotting the voltage against the current gives a graph from which the internal resistance of the cell can be derived.
The student initially wires the circuit by connecting the terminals using the mouse.
An AQA Required Activity.
