Question

Which of the following is stored by dry Leclanche cell?

Options

A) chemical energy

B) nuclear energy

C) solar energy

D) heat energy

E) electrical energy

The correct answer is E.

Explanation:

The Leclanché cell is an electric battery invented and patented by the French scientist Georges Leclanché in 1866. The battery contained a conducting solution (electrolyte) of ammonium chloride, a cathode (positive terminal) of carbon, a depolarizer of manganese dioxide (oxidizer), and an anode (negative terminal) of zinc (reductant). The chemistry of this cell was later successfully adapted to manufacture a dry cell.
