A nucleus of an atom can be compared to the sun of a solar system because the nucleus, like the sun, is the largest part of an atom and its electrons orbit around it, much like planets in a solar system. Atoms can also gain or lose electrons similarly to how stars can gain or lose planets.

Are you asking what is a nucleus like? If so the nucleus is the brain

The nucleus is like the brain and the body is the things it controls.

nucleus is a principal

The nucleus is like a brain it is the control center of everything in the cell.

The cell city analogy for a nucleus would be a city hall. This is because a city hall is the thing that controls the whole cell.

In biology, the nucleus of the cell is sometimes described as the cell's "control center".

It regulates what goes in and out of the nucleu

The nucleus is the main office. This is where plans are drafted and drawn up to make proteins.

simply the "brain" of the cell - control center

The nucleus is like the brain of the cell. It makes the rules for the cell and controls what happens in the cell.

As you probably know, an analogy is a thing that helps someone to understand a concept. For instance an example of an analogy is: "The Nucleus of a cell is like a Brain, because the nucleus of a cell controls what goes on in it." The analogy for Cell Nucleus is Brain in this case. A FUNCTIONAL analogy is an analogy of an object or thing that doesn't necessarily look, smell, feel, taste, or sound like your to-be-analogized thing, but it has a similar purpose. An example of this is: "The cell membrane of an animal cell is like a bunch of security guards because they both control what goes in/out." I hope I was helpful.

The nucleus is often referred to as the 'brain' of the cell, however this analogy is highly inaccurate and should not be used after an introductory biology course. A more accurate analogy can be the hard drive of a computer.

If I understand your question correctly, then it would be the mayor.

if nucleus is the heart of cells, nucleolus is a part of a chamber where the ribosomes are made.

a nucleus is like someone driving a car. the driver tells the car what to do and where to go like the nucleus tells the plant how to grow and what to look like.

hi , a good analogy for nuclear envelope would be a classroom door ,because its the end of the nucleus through which the messenger RNA leaves.

User Avatar

it is like a free way because the material in the nucleus moves by the er

User Avatar

It's a bad analogy, but I believe the answer you are after is 'electrons'.

The cerebellum, I suppose, though functionally that's not a good analogy.

Nothing inside the body, as the cell nucleus contains all the genetic codes. We do not have more than type of this "control center": the nucleus in each cell.An analogy is when we draw a comparison between 2 very different things that happen to share a similar quality or function. We often use analogies when something is abstract and hard to explain because we cannot see it in its usual environment, nor can we touch or hold the abstract item. A nucleus seems very alien, because we can't see, touch, or hold it. So teachers try to use analogies to explain a nucleus.A nucleus is LIKE and has a SIMILAR FUNCTION to:The human (pr animal) brain because the cell nucleus and brain cells both control activities. But a nucleus is not the brain but brain cells each has a nucleus. And the brain is not A nucleus either.A Super Computer that controls all activities of all other computers.When making an analogy to a city, a nucleus is LIKE a City Hall which keeps order in a city.When making an analogy to a school, the analogy to a nucleus is the Principal.When making an analogy to a job or workplace, the nucleus is the Top Boss!So nothing in the body is a nucleus, or the same as a nucleus. NOTHING else in your body does the same job as the nucleus. However, we can compare a nucleus to many things and people who make the biggest rules and create power to make the rules work all the time. Besides the brain (the organ), the cell nucleus is just as much the most powerful item in our bodies (same for animals).
