1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider a closed circuit containing a cell and nothing else. If we assume that the wire contributes no resistance, and there is no internal resistance in the cell. Would there be current flowing in the wire? It's like if you're putting an ammeter in the middle of the circuit, would there be deflection? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution Clueless.
