Basic question on resistance - seeking a better understanding
You clearly know the facts. It is also important to make sure how you present them is helpful - that's why I picked you up.
It may have not have been what you meant to write but my quote was straight off your post. The row of dots between the two descriptions implies that they are equivalent and you know they are not.
Also, the Maximum Power Theorem is really not relevant here. All that counts is the internal resistance and just piling on the extra information about the MPT implies that is how batteries are operated and is confusing.
When one is trying to 'explain' things, it's walking on eggshells. Someone who is uninformed can pick up the wrong end of the stick so easily and these are two examples. I hate it when that happens.
