# When a currentof 2Aflows in a batteryfromnegative to positive terminal, thepotential difference acrossit is 12V. If a current of 3Aflowing in the opposite direction produces a potential difference of 15V, theEMF of the battery is(A) 12.6 V (B) 13.2 V (C) 13.5 V (D) 14.0 V

writing equations ,
- to +  flow of current  INSIDE THE BATTERY -----   E - 2 *r =12
+to -  flow of current ------    E + 3 * r =15
solve the equations ---
E =13.2 V
