Which of the following statements is false? (a) A Leclanché cell is suitable for use in torches (b) A nickel–cadmium cell is an example of a primary cell 14. f. of a cell? f. of a cell be measured? 15. Define internal resistance 16. f. d. V volts is given by: V = .

Lechlanché cell A typical dry Lechlanché cell is shown in Fig. 6. f. 5 V when new, but this falls rapidly if in continuous use due to polarisation. The hydrogen film on the carbon electrode forms faster than can be dissipated by the depolariser. The Lechlanché cell is suitable only for intermittent use, applications including torches, transistor radios, bells, indicator circuits, gas lighters, controlling switch-gear, and so on. The cell is the most commonly used of primary cells, is cheap, requires little maintenance and has a shelf life of about 2 years.

Certain batteries contain substances which can be a hazard to humans, wildlife and the environment, as well a posing a fire risk. Other batteries can be recycled for their metal content. Waste batteries are a concentrated source of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium. If batteries containing heavy metals are disposed of incorrectly, the metals can leach out and pollute the soil and groundwater, endangering humans and wildlife. e. a substance producing cancerous growth), can cause liver and lung disease.
