B Can EMF be the same as the current (const)?

    As the title states, can EMF = I = const ?

    Where did you come across that equation? emf and current are two different types of quantities. They cannot be equal. It is like saying 2 oranges = 3 elephants

    Thats what i thought, but what if the circuit has no consumer, can the equatiuon work then ?

    Nothing matters. The two can never be equal. It still says 2 oranges = 3 elephants.

    Thank you for your answer. I think this cleared my head.
