# Problem: A battery has an EMF of 12.0 volts and internal resistance of 3 ohms A 21.0-ohm resistor is connected to the battery. 0.5 Amps flow through the battery, hence 0.5 Amps flows through the 21.0-ohm resistor The potential difference across the 21.0-ohm resistor is 10.5 Volts, hence the terminal voltage of the battery is 10.5 Volts.How much work w does the battery connected to the 21.0-ohm resistor perform in one minute? Express your answer in joules.
