Homework Help: Physics

Batteries are not perfect. Instead they have an "internal resistance, a catch all phrase which describes the internal chemical workings of the battery which prevents it from providing an unchanging voltage regardless ofnits load. A simple model of internal resistance attaches a small resistor to each battery in a circuit. Consider a circuit with three batteries connected in series to a 200 ohms resistor.
Lets assume the internal resistance gets worse as the battery provides a greater EMF. To that end , lets see the internal resistance r(i) of the battery with EMF E(i) equal to be bE(i) where b is a constant assumed the same for all the three batteries. If the battteries have EMF's 5v, 10v, 15v and there is 0.137 A of current flowing from the battery ,find the value of b.
I=.137 A)
