The cytoplasm is the liquid-like part of the cell. Within this, the various cellular organelles are suspended. The cytoplasm is enclosed within the cell membrane in animal cells.

The cytoplasm is an important part of the cell as most cellular processes and mechanisms rely on the cytoplasm to function efficiently.
By definition, the cytoplasm involves all the components present outside the nucleus but within the cell membrane.
