Firstly, when explaining to students, students should be made clear how the systematic errors of the experiment are produced: because the ammeter has internal resistance, the result of voltage dividing makes the reading of the voltmeter smaller than the real value of the circuit voltage, so the circuit voltage should be corrected. The difference between the battery EMF and its terminal voltage is a lost voltage across the internal resistance of the battery, given by Ir. The more current that is drawn from the battery the larger the lost voltage. Class discussion after the experiment should prepare the way for the theory session which follows. Identify and construct an appropriate graph for the purpose of determination of emf and internal resistance of the dry cell.

Students could then find the mean EMF and internal resistance, together with their associated uncertainties. We would normally expect a 3 V cell to have an EMF of about 3 V, and an internal resistance which is much higher than the AA cell - which indeed is what we found, measuring an internal resistance of 15 Ω.
