Muscle cells have more number of mitochondria that skin cell? Why?

Dear Student,
Mitochondria are required more in number in those regions where constant supply of energy is required. Muscle tissue require constant source of energy since muscle always tend to remain in state of contraction or relaxation. Similarly, in liver oxidation of fats takes place which require constant supply of energy. That's why mitochondria are found more in number in liver and muscles.

DEAR FRIEND,
OUR MUSCLES NEED MORE ENERGY TO WORK.. THIS ENERGY IS GAINED BY THE MUSCLE CELLS BY MITOCHONDRIA..AS WE KNOW THAT MITOCHONDRIA IS KNOWN AS POWER HOUSE OF A CELL AND WE CAN SAY THAT MITOCHONDRIA PLAYS AN ESSENTIAL AND ACTIVE ROLE IN MUSCLE CELLS... SO WE CAN SAY THAT MUSCLE CELLS HAVE MORE NUMBER OF MITOCHONDRIA THAT OF SKIN CELL..

HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS ANSWER.
THANK YOU.
