I have some questions about cell's, need answers asap?

1.Also how are they different?

2.How is mitochondria and chloroplast SIMILAR?

3.How are lysosmes, vacuoles and plastids similar?

4.How are they different?

    1. A cell is different in the way that it has a task to do. And so they're different because they have different organelles or receptors or even synthesize and release a chemical to do their job. There are around 220 different types of cells in the human body. All adapted to their own job.

    2. They're similar because they both produce energy for the cell. Mitochondria being in animals and chloroplasts being in plant cells.

    3+4. I answered a question that was the same this morning, so I've just copied and pasted my answer for you:

    Lysosomes, Vacuoles and plastids are all similar in one way. This is that Lysosomes (AKA 'suicide sacs') contain Hydrolytic enzymes that will kill/degrade a worn out cell. Vacuoles also play a part in degradation of some substances and organelles. And Plastids use Gerontoplasts to degrade the chloroplasts.

    They're different in many ways. Plastids have to differentiate (or change) in to another type of cell, like the Gerontoplasts previously mentioned or a leucocyte (which is needed for synthesis of other chemicals). Vacuoles also store waste products and other substances, and sometimes will help keep the integrity of the cell. Lysosomes are also found in white blood cells across the human body and play a part in Phagocytosis. Plastids are found in plants, so are Vacuoles but they're also found in fungi cells and some animal cells. Lysosomes are found in animals.

    Mitochondria and chloroplasts both have DNA and can produce their own energy. Difference is that mitochondria does not contain chlorophyll and that chloroplasts are not found in animals when mitochondria are found in both plants and animals.

    All lysosomes, vacuoles and plastids store things (ex. wastes, pigments, damaging things to cell)
