Homework Help: Phyics

Posted by ALan on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 12:07am.

A resistor has a resistance R, and a battery has an internal resistance r. When the resistor is connected across the battery, ten percent less power is dissipated in R than would be dissipated if the battery had no internal resistance. Show that the ratio r/R is equal to 0.054

I let R = 1 ohms
r 0.054 ohms
*Without Internal resistance*
Vloop=0
emf-IR=0
emf=IR
*With internal resisntace*
Vloop=0
emf-IR-Ir=0
emf=IR+Ir

I get stuck after this, I am unsure where to head now. Can someone please write out the procedure? Please and thank you.
