Endoplasmic Reticulums Rough-Assembles ProteinsSmooth- Assembles Lipids
Golgi Aparatus Sorts, packages proteins from E.R. for storage and transport out of cell
Vacuole Stores materials such as water carbohydrates and proteins
Lysosomes Breaks down Lipids, carbohydrates and proteins into smaller molecules
Ribosome Uses instructions to synthysize proteins
Chloroplast(Solar power plant) In the process of photosynthesis this catches light from the sun, and then converts that into chemical energy
