The result is that the internal resistance is, to a good approximation, inversely proportional to the capacity. 022 per cell is a rule of thumb taken from a range of good-quality traction batteries. A good estimate of the internal resistance of a lead acid battery is thus R = no. 0, that is six in the case of a 12 V battery. C10 is the amphour capacity at the 10 h rate. g. electric motor 2SO42− PbO2 + 4H + + SO 42− + 2e− → PbSO4 + 2H 2O + Negative electrode changes from lead peroxide to lead sulfate Electrons flow round the external circuit Reactions during the discharge of the lead acid battery.

5) This results in the self-discharge of the battery. The rate at which these reactions occur depends on the temperature of the cell – faster if hotter. It also depends on other factors, such as the purity of the components (hence quality) and the precise alloys used to make up the electrode supports. These unwanted reactions, which also produce hydrogen and oxygen gas, also occur while the battery is discharging. In fact they occur faster if the battery is discharged faster, due to lower voltage, higher temperature and higher electrode activity.

This basic knowledge is also needed in regard to likely hazards in an accident and the overall impact of the use of battery chemicals on the environment. Recycling of used batteries is also becoming increasingly important. The main parameters that specify the behaviour and performance of a battery are given in the following section. In the later sections the chemistry and performance of the most important battery types are outlined, and finally the very important topic of battery performance modelling is outlined.
