Detailed explanation1: Humans have 46 chromosomes in each diploid cell. Among those, there are two sexdetermining chromosomes, and 22 pairs of autosomal, or nonsex, chromosomes. The total number of chromosomes in diploid cells is described as 2n, which is twice the number of chromosomes in a haploid cell (n).
Detailed explanation2: Chromosome number For example, humans are diploid (2n) and have 46 chromosomes in their normal body cells. These 46 chromosomes are organized into 23 pairs: 22 pairs of autosomes and 1 pair of sex chromosomes.
Detailed explanation3: Definition. Having two sets of chromosomes; e.g., a plant with a diploid chromosome number of 2n = 24 has two sets of 12 each (one from the paternal and the other from the maternal parent).
Detailed explanation4: To get the possible gamete combination of gametes, the formula is 2 raised to the power n (
