calculate EMF of Battery

when an external resistor R1=14 is connected to the terminals of the battery , a current of I=6 flows through the resistor. when an external resistor of R=64.4 is connected instead, the current is 2. Calculate the
emf of the battery and the internal resistance of the battery

solution that i tried:

for emf :  emf = Vab = IR  6*14

internal resistance should be  Vab= Emf-I*R and solve for R ,

am i right??

emf/(14+IR)=6
emf/(64.4+IR)=2

Your last equation is correct
E = 6*(r + 14)
E = 2*(r+64.4)

there are 2 equations and 2 unknowns. Solve for E & r.

Ozo, I hope by IR, yo umeant internal resistance and not I*R. Could be intereprested both ways.

actually both showed up at the same time..
thanks gentlemen..

thanks ozo!
