Would your headlights dim when you start your car’s engine if the wires in your automobile were superconductors? (Do not neglect the battery’s internal resistance.) Explain.
Step 1 of 3
The wires in the automobile is said to be superconductor, so the voltage drop is negligible, as there is negligible resistance in the wire.
When the car is started, it dissipates the power; suddenly, the headlight of the car became dimmed up to a certain extent. As there is a voltage drop due to the battery’s internal resistance.
