because if cells were big, we would be big, annd there would be no space on earth:-)

thats a stupid question!!!!

they are small because thats how cells evolved.

Cells are the basic structural and functional units of life. As life on
earth has evolved into organisms of varying complexities, two basic laws
of nature have dictated why cells have remained so small.
Shorter is
faster. This is true both in terms of diffusion and in terms of chemical
and electrical movement. By minimizing the the distance between a cell's
nucleus and and the numerous proteins and organelles that it must
constantly regulate , a cell is maximizing the speed in which
intercellular communications can take place while providing the ideal
conditions for diffusion: a vital function in the life of a cell.
Like
wise, the surface area and volume of a cell are directly influential in
the efficiency of the cell's nutrient absorption and waste expulsion
processes. Since the cell membrane of a eukaryotic cell is its only
source of nutrition, it's surface area must be large enough to allow the
cell's organelles to receive the materia ls it needs. This is done by
maximizing the surface area to volume ratio. By using the surface area
and volume equations for a sphere(4¹r2 and 4/3¹r3) you can estimate the
modeling the growth rate of the surface area and volume of a sphere on a
linear graph it's easily discernible that as the size of the sphere
increases the ratio of surface area to volume dramatically decreases
until finally the volume of the sphere surpasses the surf ace area.

Simply, by minimizing its size, a cell is maximizing the speed at which
it can communicate, the rate at which diffusion can occur, and the amount
of surface area at it's disposal.

They wouldn't be able to transport proteins/ATP easily if they were larger. It takes 2 ATP to transport pyruvate into the mitochondrial inner membrane to undergo Krebs cycle at the microscopic size cells have. If they were bigger, they'd be inefficient.

Well yeah, homeostase wouldn't work, you'd die.

Though technically, you could never really be alive.

Yes, I made an account to ask this question. Is it really that weird? No. I wanted some feedback from some proper guitar experts who knew what they were talking about. Sorry, I guess I was wrong.

because it only looks small to us, because we need 513684646 of them to live.

An egg is a cell, and that's not really small is it?

The rate of diffusion would be to slow if they were bigger and then cells would need to have transport systems made of cells which would be to big.
#26
it's to with surface area to volume ratio. As the cell increases in size the ratio becomes smaller.

I think what he is trying to say is it is small in order to maximize the surface area of the cell. Which is the main reason that cells are usually small.

they aren't they're actually huge!

but we're even MORE huge, so they seem small to us.

Edit: i just realised i was beaten to that aswell
FFS!!
i gotta think of something else now... ¬¬
