Hello everyone,

Please excuse this really basic question, but I have been searching around for hours and can't seem to find a satisfactory explanation.
Fact: 1 volt is enough electrical potential to push 1 coulumb through
1 ohm of resistance in 1 sec.

Why then is a AA battery rated at far less then 1 ampere?

Is there some resistance I'm not aware of?

Thanks everyone! I'm just getting started, as you can tell.
