# A straight line plot showing the terminal potential energy (V) of a cell as a function of current ( I) drawn from it , is shown in the figure . Using this plot determine (i) the emf and (ii) internal resistance of the cell.

dear student,
equation of graph is

$V=-\left(\frac{1.2-0.8}{0.12-0.04}\right)i+1.4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}V=-5i+1.4$
emf is when current is zero
therefore emf is 1.4V
internal resistance is magnitude of slope hence 5ohm
