## Homework Statement

two cell,with emf=10V,with 4Ωinternal resistance are connected with a 8Ω resistor as shown in the fig.

What is the current through the 8Ω resistor?

## Homework Equations

V=IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

If i just consider 1 cell but the internal resistance of another cell is remained there.I guess the current will separate at the point which joint the resistor and the cell.

Here is my calculation

Eq resistance=4+1/(1/8+1/4)

Main current=1.5A

Therefore the current passes through the resistor is 1A

Now come back to the problem,there are 2 cells,so i multiply 1 by 2 and get 2A

But the ans is 1A only
