Hi,

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

Thanks!

Hi Microman Grinning Face

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.
