Find the emf E.?

When switch S in the figure is open, the voltmeter V of the battery reads 3.07 V . When the switch is closed, the voltmeter reading drops to 2.96 V , and the ammeter A reads 1.67 A . Assume that the two meters are ideal, so they do not affect the circuit.

    3.07 volts IS the emf voltage of the battery.

    perhaps you mean resistor r, as that is the only unknown.

    voltage across it is 3.07–2.96 = 0.11 volts

    r = R/I = 0.11 / 1.67 = 0.066 Ω

    When there is no current flow, emf E is 3.07 V.
