Flagella are long whip like structures that the organism has only one or two of.

Cilia are numerous hair like structures that cover most of the organisms surface.

Both impart locomotion to the organism.

The motility of a eukaryotic cell is produced by organs called cilia and flagella.

On the rear end of a eukaryotic cell. :)

Flagella is the tail-like piece connected to the Cell Body of certain prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and it functions in locomotion. The Cilia is an organelle found in eukaryotic cells that also project from the cell body. In Eukaryotic Cells the Cilia and Flagella make up a group of organelles called the undulipodia and the Cilia and Flagella are structurally similar.

There are two main forms of locomotion in a eukaryotic cell. They are cilia and flagella. Both can be found on cells.

Cilia and flagella are the means of locomotion in unicellular organisms. They differ in the numbers found in cell, their sizes and their shapes.

Cilia and flagella are made from microtubules which project from the cell. They also contain motor protein dynein and are found in eukaryotic cells.

Both can be found on the outside of an Eukaryotic cellThey have similar structure. Flagella are longer.Cilia are shoreter

Cilia and flagella are both used for locomotion. Cilia are tiny hair structures that surround the cell, while flagella are long, whip-like single tails that propels the cell in one direction.

Flagella and cilia allow a cell to move.

Cilia and flagella are found on the exterior of the cell membrane

Cilia and flagella are structurally similar but differentiated based on their function and length. Cilia are short, and there are usually hundreds of cilia per cell. Flagella are longer, and there are far fewer per cell, usually one to eight. Also, the motion of flagella is often undulating, whereas the motile cilia often perform a more complicated 3D motion with a power and recovery stroke.

It is false that cilia and flagella are cell surfaces adapted for respiration. Cilia and flagella are hair like structures of a cell that help a cell to move.

Flagella are long and whip-like structures that pushes the cell in one direction. Cilia are tiny hair like structures that surround the cell, pulling the cell's environment in a random order.

Cilia and flagella both help the cell to swim and move liquid past the cell surface.While flagella are one or two whip like structure on cell cilia is fine hair like structure covering the cell

Cilia and flagella allow the cell to move around. See the Related Link below.

Both animals and plants produce flagella. I think cilia are just modified flagella.

yes centrosomes, ribosomes, and actin are required by the cell to form cilia or flagella.

what maintains cell shape, help cilia and flagella, form centrioles in cell division

They can have both. Cilia are little 'hairs' that surround the entire cell while flagella are longer 'hairs' at one end of the cell that help propel it.

Flagella and cilia are structure that aid in locomotion and help move fluids across the surface of tissue cell in animals.

Microvilli, cilia, and flagella.
