whats the difference between flagella and cilia ?
Cilia and flagella are the hair like appendages which help in locomotion in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Basically the structure of cilia and flagella is the same but if in a cell there is one or a few it is called flagella and if there are many it is called cilia. These structures move the fluid around them for movement. If the cells are immobile then they are helpful in moving the fluid around them for transportation of other substances.
