why are villi present in small intestin not in stomach?

This is because the function of vill is to provide a large surface area for the absorption of the digsted food.Absorption of digested food takes place only in the small intestine-not in the stomach(which is mainly concerned with the digestion of proteins)-so villi are present in the small intestine and not in the stomach.

the intestine is the site where most of the nutrients are absorbed whereas the stomach is mostly used to break down proteins. Villi increase the surface area in the intestines which facilitates absorption.

 VILLI INCREASE THE SURFACE AREA IN THE INTESTINES WHICH FACILITES ABSORPTION.
