## Homework Statement

The voltmeter is removed (previous question was a voltmeter connected to a battery and it reads 12 V) and a resistor of 21 ohm is connected to the battery. What is the current (I) through the battery?

## Homework Equations

emf=V

I=emf/(R+r)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to do I=12V/21 ohm but I don't know how to find R. When I entered the solution of that, it said to include the internal resistance of the battery, but I don't know the current of the battery so I can't use emf=IR to find R.
