How many sex cells are in your body?
23 sex cells are in each human body, and there are 46 body cells.
How many chromosomes do body cells of organisms have in relationship to the sex cells of the same organism?
According to suttons observations how does the number of chromosomes in a grasshopper's body cells compare to the number in it's sex cells?
There would 6 sex cells because, sex cells are diploid. Which is (1N) So for every set of chromosomes it has, there is only one. So just divide by 2. example: Fly has 12 somatic (body) cells Fly has 6 sex cells 12/ 2= 6 sex cells Bird has 28 somatic (body) cells Bird has 14 sex cells 28/ 2= 14 sex cells
It has 46 chromosomes because it is a body cell. All body cells have 46 chromosomes except our sex cells, which have 23. Body cells are refered to as 2n, or diploid, while sex cells are just n, or haploid. When sex cells combine they form another regular body cell, because the chromosomes come together.
The cells in mitosis are body cells. The cells in meiosis are sex cells. In meiosis the sex cells divide 2 times to make 4 sex cells. in mitosis the body cells divide once to make 2 body cells. body cells have 46 chromosomes and sex cells have 23 chromosomes because when a sperm and an egg come together in fertilization the 23 chromosomes from each sex cell make 46 chromosomes that a body cell…
Body cells have "pairs" of chromosomes while sex cells have only single sets of chromosomes. The human body cells have 22 pairs of autosomes and 1 pair of sex chromosomes for a total of 23 pairs or 46 chromosomes. Sex cells for humans will have half of that (because they are not paired) so a total of 23 chromosomes.
Body Cells range from doing work as a heart cell to being a liver cells. Body cells have 46 chromosomes. Sex cells (germ Cells) are only used for reproduction, are the ovum in woman and the sperm in a man. Sex cells have 23 chromosomes, so that they can be matched up with another sex cell to form a body cell.
