**Comparison of emf and potential difference**

**1.**The difference of potentials between the two terminals of a cell in an open circuit is called the electromotive force(emf) of a cell. The difference in potentials between any two points in a closed circuit is called potential difference.

2. The emf is independent of external resistance of the circuit, whereas potential difference is proportional to the resistance between any two points.
