    Nevermind, I got it, but the next problem is giving me a bit of trouble:

    If E = 7.5 volts and r = .45 ohms, find the minimum value of the voltmeter resistance R_V for which the voltmeter reading is within 1.0% of the emf of the battery.

    I am given the following equation to work with:

    Nevermind, got that too. Disregard this thread, heh.
