The sperm and egg cell reach each other in the water and fertalize the egg
Because sperm cell have a tail to swim quickly to the egg cell.....
it enables the sperm to move around to reach the egg
it takes three days
It's not possible, because after one sperm cell reaches an egg, the egg cell slightly changes look to keep other sperm cells from reaching the same egg.
Because the egg cell is carried down the oviduct by little hairs called cilia and the sperm cell has to reach the egg cell before it gets to the uterus (womb).
when a sperm cell unites with an egg cell it fertilizes the egg cell
When a sperm cell joins an egg cell the resulting sperm-egg hybrid is called a zygote.
Fast-swimming sperm can reach the egg in a half an hour, while others may take days. The sperm can live up to 48-72 hours.
When sperm reach an egg, there is a competition to get into the egg first. Since sperm travel in groups, theres a lot of competition. Once a sperm has penetrated the membrane, the membrane hardens, blocking the rest of the sperm out. Once inside, the sperm releases its genetic material, and the egg cell divides, and will continue so until a new baby is born.
The joining of an egg cell and a sperm cell is called fertilization
Fertilization... Is when the Sperm cell unites with the Egg cell...
the egg is larger than the sperm cell
Fertilization of the egg by the sperm cell.
The process when an egg cell and a sperm cell COMBINE is called Fertilization
Fertilization is the union of the sperm cell and egg cell.
It fuses with the membrane of the egg cell, and the content of the sperm cell enters the egg cell.
The egg cell
A zygote (the combination of a cell and sperm) is the name of the cell that forms when the sperm and egg combine.
The uniting is known as fertilisation of the egg by the sperm.
Between 100 to 500 sperm only reach the egg to be fertilized
Once a sperm enters the egg, fertilisation of the egg begins.
One because the sperm is one cell and the egg is one cell
