    Nucleus= enclosed by its nuclear membrane or envelope
    = contains chromatin, DNA and RNA
    Mitochondria= enclosed by two membranes
    = converts chemical energy (food) into another form of chemical energy (ATP) that the cells can use
    Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)= rough ER has ribosomes attached to it; it is also involved in protein synthesis
    =smooth ER stores calcium and makes lipids; it is attached to the rough ER
    Golgi Apparatus= also called golgi body or golgi complex
    = packages, stores, sorts, and transports manufactured proteins
    Chloroplasts (in plant cells)= enclosed by two membranes
    = converts solar/light energy into chemical energy (food/sugar)

    Nucleus: genetic material repository
    Mitochondria: ATP synthesis Site
    Chloroplast: site of photosynthesis in plant cell
    Ribosomes:  site of protein synthesis

    Lysosomes : spherical like organelles that contains hydrolytic enzymes to breakdown, when is needed macro molecules. They are present at the animal cells.
    Plastids : double membrane organelles found in the plants where the majority of the metabolic substances is preserved.
    Golgi apparatus: made out from  intercommunicated cisterns and where the proteins are processed
