plant cells can make there own food because they have chloroplasts, but also have mitochondria, while animal cells only have mitochondria which doesn't make it's own food, because of the chloroplasts plants cells don't need as much mitochondria.

Mitochondria produces energy. Animal cells have more mitochondria because they need more energy. Plants don't move, so they don't need a lot of energy.

They need lots of ATP energy molecules to actively transport mineral ions through carrier proteins into the cell from the soil solution against the concentration gradient.

There is not a specific number.It may vary from cell to cell.

What cell has a cell wall many organelles including mitochondria a nucleus a vacuole and several chloroplasts?

Plant cell. Animal cells don't have chloroplasts...or else you'd be green!


How do you destroy the mitochondria in the cell?

The only way to kill the mitochondria in the cell is.... die. Life's processes are fueled by the energy that the mitochondria produce with the molecules that are taken in whether be plant or animal. Animal cells may contain more than one mitochondria for each cell. There can be as many as 20 individual mitochondria housed in a single cell.


How many genomes does a plant cell have?

The largest genome in a plant cell is DNA in its nucleus. However, two organelles in the cell, the mitochondria and chloroplasts each have their own DNA as well, so a plant cell can have up to three different genomes.


What do plant and animals cell have in common?

They both have DNA, a nucleus, cell membranes, mitochondria, and many other cellular structures. Plant cells are the only ones with chloroplasts and cell walls though.


How many cells are in a plant cell?

The plant cell is the only cell!! If you are talking about how many organelles, I will tell you the major one: Nucleus, Nucleolus, Cytoplasm, Mitochondria, E.R., Nuclear Membrane, Cell Membrane, Cell Wall, Chloroplast, Ribosomes, Golgi Bodies, vacuole.


What does both a plant cell and an animal cell have?

There are many organelles. Some are nucleus,plasma membrane,golgi,ER,LYSOSOMES, CYTOSKELETON,MITOCHONDRIA ETC


How many Mitochondria are in a Plant Cell?

Assuming that the plant cell is a sphere of about 25 micrometer in radius, you can estimate the volume = 6.5 x 10-14 m3 Assuming that mitochondria are spherical as well (which is not true, but we're estimating things here), their diameter is about 1.5 micrometers Volume = 1.8 x 10-18 m3 Now, dividing the plant cell volume by the mitochondrium volume gives roughly 36,000 mitochondria.

What is a mitochondria in a cell do and what is it there for?

mitochondria is present in both plant and animal cell.It is also called as the power house of the cell,it provides energy to the call so that they perform many functions of the cells.It forms ATP that provides energy.


Would you expect a muscle cell to have many or few mitochondria?

You would expect to find many mitochondria in a muscle cell. This is because the mitochondria makes the energy fo a cell, and muscle cells need alot of energy to do their job. The more energy a cell needs to do its job, the more mitochondria it has.


How can the number of mitochondria in a cell decide its function?

If there are many mitochondria in a cell, we can clarify that this cell's function would be to support, or be involved in the process of respiration.. I think!


What are 3 organelles that the plant and animal cells share?
