    1.) What is the potential difference Vad in the circuit of the figure? (Part A 1 figure)

    2.) What is the terminal voltage of the 4.00-V battery?

    3.)A battery with emf 10.30V and internal resistance 0.50ohms is inserted in the circuit at d, with its negative terminal connected to the negative terminal of the 8.00-V battery. What is the difference of potential Vbc between the terminals of the 4.00-V battery now?

    1.)What is the potential difference Vad in the circuit of the figure? (Part A 1 figure)
    Considering clockwise direction positive, Net EMF in the circuit will be + 8.00 - 4.00 = 4.00 V
    The current in the loop will face a total resistance
    R = 6.00 + 0.50 + 9.00 + 0.50 + 8.00 = 24.0 
    Hence the current in the loop is given by
    I = V/R = 4.00/24.0 = 1/6 = 0.167 A
    (this current is in clockwise direction)
    Starting from point d and going along the loop (clockwise)
    Vd + EMF of ...
