Computerized Investigations of Battery Characteristics.
Hinrichsen, P. F.
Physics Education, v36 n4 p327-37 Jul 2001
Uses a computer interface to measure terminal voltage versus current characteristic of a variety of batteries, their series and parallel combinations, and the variation with discharge. The concept of an internal resistance demonstrates that current flows through the battery determine the efficiency and serve to introduce Thevenin's theorem. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/ASK)
