Does Battery Capacity depend on Internal Resistance?

  1. Apr 24, 2010 #1
    Just like the title, does battery capacity depend on internal resistance?

    I know it does depend on the temperature and the chemical structure of the battery,

    but does it also depend on internal resistance?

    If so, how dependent are batteries on internal resistance?

    Also, what is the relationship between them?
    (If there is a formula, please tell me)

    Yes, there are relation between battery capacity or discharge curve and its internal resistance. For more information you can refer to DC Systems Riddle No.1 from http://electrical-riddles.com
