What will be the current circuit and terminal voltage?

  1. if we connect terminals of an ideal cells with an external wire of no resistance?

  2. if we connect terminals of cell with some internal resistance with an external wire of no resistance?

Ideal voltage sources and zero resistance wire are conceptual devices used for circuit analysis only. If you put this problem into a circuit simulator, such as spice, it should throw an error as you have requested a division by zero (by ohm's law). Try it!
