Mitosis is the process by which a eukaryotic cell separates the chromosomes  in its cell nucleus into two identical sets in two nuclei. It is generally followed immediately by cytokinesis, which divides the nuclei, cytoplasm, organelles  and cell membrane into two cells containing roughly equal shares of these cellular components.

Mitosis is when a cell cuts itself in half, splitting everything equally between both halves. Then, those new, smaller cells, grow into bigger cells during Interphase, and go through Mitosis once again. It's a never ending process, and it's what keeps us growing... and living.

The primary result of mitosis is the division of the parent cell's genome into two daughter cells.

Mitosis can be describes as cell division in which the nucleus divides into nuclei containing the same number of chromosomes!

Most living organisms consist of cells. Cells have a variety of functions in the body. They are each like small factories producing, packaging, recycling, transporting,... things that are necessary to maintain all body functions. Cells work hard and therefore they need to be replaced regularly. Mitosis is a series of operations that transforms an old cell into two exact "new" copies. The new cells do exactly the same thing as the old cell did.
