Finding the EMF of the cell....
first post =)
Find the EMF of the cell.
(diagram has been uploaded)
Resistors is series : Rs= R1 + R2 + R3
Resistors in parallel: 1/Rp = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/r3
V=IR
Firstly i redrew the circuit in a more simple form, to see what resistors are in parralel and which ones are in series. I then found the total resistance in the parralel circuit part that contained the 0.2A current. after that i used : V=IR.
My answer still seems incorrect as i got total EMF = 4.8V
