ConceptElectrolytic Cells and Electrolysis - Introduction

#### Question

Write the name of the cell which is generally used in transistors. Write the reactions taking place at the anode and the cathode of this cell.

#### Solution

The dry cell (also known as Leclanche cell) is used in transistors.

The reactions taking place at the anode and cathode are given below.

At anode: Zn(s) → Zn2+ + 2e

At cathode : MnO_2 + NH_4^+ + e^(-) -> MnO(OH) + NH_3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
