When switch S in the figure is open, the voltmeter V of the battery reads 3.13V . When the switch is closed, the voltmeter reading drops to 2.90V , and the ammeter A reads 1.70A. Assume that the two meters are ideal, so they do not affect the circuit.
emf= V
sorry I left out the V and the A earlier.
