how big can a cell be?? i really wanna know this. it’s in my course but i have no clue about it. can someone around here please help me??
Cells are usually small, mainly because an increase in size leads to an overall increase in the volume/surface ratio.
The neuron can reach 1 meter. Skeletical muscular fibre about 20 cm…
Guess it depends on what type(s) of cells you’re talking about (eg. plant cells, animal cells).

isn’t the biggest cell an egg?
Yes it is. About 200-250 micron.
thanks alot for helping me.i was actually asking for the size of an animal cell.thanks anyways.
There was a picture in my textbook of a single prokaryote of the size of a drosopholas head, was freaky lol
The biggest bacteria is named Thiomargarita nambiensis. It was discovered in 1997. It is about 0.75 mm in size, and it is visible with the naked eye
