Expert Answer:

Mitosis is an equational division whereas Meosis is reductional division.

In Mitosis, the number of chromosomes remain constant in both the parent and daughter cells whereas in Meiosis, the number of chromosomes in daughter cells is half of that of the parent cells.

In Mitosis, the parent cells divides to form two daughter cells whereas in Meosis, the parent cells divide to form four daughter cells.

Mitosis occurs in somatic cells, whereas in Meosis occurs in reproductive cells.

Meosis is a much longer process than Mitosis.
