Finding potential difference between terminals

  1. May 25, 2009 #1
    Dear all,

    can some one help me to solve this question

    6 resisitors of resistance 5 ohm are connected to 2 v cell of negligible internal resistance, what will be the pottential difference between terminals, how to slove this

    thanks

    Current is equal to voltage over resistance, so how do you calculate voltage? do you know the current that's flowing?

    manjula, you really should show an attempt at solving the problem before we can give you help.

    Are the resistors connected in series (you didn't say in your post). If so, then as Bobbadillo said you'll need to find the current in the circuit.
