how is the shape of a cell suited to it’s function?
One of the most important things to remember when talking about cells in biology is that form fits function. The shape of a cell affects it’s surface area and a high or low (generally high) surface area determines what tasks a cell is able to carry out. As an example, red blood cells are very small and are somewhat round but still very flat. This allows for them to pass through the very small capillaries in the body.
