cell wall gives the cell shape and rigidity (in a plant cell)
chloroplasts absorb sun's energy for the production of food (in a plant cell)
vacuole stores water, nutrients, wastes, and other substances (in a plant cell)
ribosomes produce proteins (in a plant cell)
mitochondrion cell's energy is produced here (in a plant cell)
