  3. What is ATP?
    A major energy-storing compound in both plant and animal cells
  4. What does ATP stand for?
    Adenosin Triphosphate
  5. What is the role of ATP in organisms?
    It stores energy.
  6. List 3 examples of how ATP is used in a cell.
    • 1. Active transport across cell membranes
    • 2. Protein synthesis
    • 3. Muscle contraction
  7. Explain the carbon dioxide/oxygen cycle.
    Oxygen is produced by plants and breathed in by animals. Animals produce carbon dioxide and it is used by plants.
