Hi,

How can prokaryotic cells be smaller than eukaryotic cells and still carry on all the functions of life?

Thanks!

Hi Microman Grin

Eukaryotic cells must be large enough to hold a nucleus and a mitochondrion (the minimum number of organelles). Prokaryotic cells contain molecules needed to carry on metabolic activities, but do not contain membrane-enclosed organelles, which require extra space.
