**Combination of cells.....**

## Homework Statement

Two cells of emf E1=6V and E2= 5V are joined in parallel with same polarity on same side, without any external load. If their internal resistances are r1=2ohm and r2= 3ohm respectively , then which of the following is true?

1. terminal PD across any cell is less than 5V

2. Terminal PD across any cell is 5.6 V

3. Current through the cell is .2 A

4. current throgh the cells is zero is E1= E2

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I got point 2 correct by using the formula for grouping of cells and if 2 is correct one is not....I am ok till that but i am not getting how to do the other parts....(3 nad 4)...what is meant by having no external load and what 'current throgh the cells' are they talking about current through each of them or current through the entire battery(the equivalent cell)?
