(a) Calculate the number of cells in a hummingbird assuming the mass of an average cell is ten times the mass of a bacterium. (b) Making the same assumption, how many cells are there in a human?

Problem 35PE

Solution 35E

Step 1 of 4:

In this question, we are to find number of cells humming bird and human , assuming mass of one cell is 10 times mass of bacterium

Data

Mass of bacterium cell

Mass of humming bird

Mass of human

Step 2 of 4:

We have the approximate number of cells in hummingbird as

Hence we have approximate number of cells in hummingbird as
