Expert Answer:

A dry-cell is a compact form of Leclanché cell. The cell is made up of an outer zinc container, which acts as the anode. The cathode is a graphite (central carbon) rod, surrounded by a mixture of carbon and manganese (IV) oxide (MnO2). The electrolyte is a paste of ammonium chloride (NH4Cl). A fibrous fabric separates the two electrodes, and a brass pin in the center of the cell conducts electricity to the outside circuit.
