    Eukaryotic cells contain a nucleus and developed organelle.
    Prokaryotic cells don't have a nucleus.

    Eukaryotic cell would be any cell containing specialised organelles in the cytoplasms, a membrane bound nucleus and divides by mitosis or meiosis. Prokarytoic cell would be any cell that doesn't have a nucleus and all the genetic material is free in the cytoplasm.Any definition would in some way have a description of the function or differences so not sure what i ve given is what you d call an ideal definition but hope it helps somehow.
