Battery Internal Resistance#

A battery with an internal resistance of \(r\) and an emf of \(\textrm{ V}\) is connected to a load resistor \(R =\) 3\(r\) and current \(I_0\) flows. As the battery ages, the internal resistance increases by a factor of 3.

Part 1#

Find the ratio \(I\_\mathrm{f}/I_0\), where \(I\_\mathrm{f}\) is the final current after the battery has aged.
