1. What does the abbreviation 'ATP' mean? Is that food+oxgen=energy?
2. I don't really know what 'respiration' means?
3. There are 7 categories of classification: Kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species. But what's the difference among 'class' ,'order' and 'family'? What's the difference between 'genus' and 'species'. In other words, what are the relations among those words, or what does each word represent?

Thanks for replies.

1. Adenosine triphosphate, energy in the body is used as the phosphate bonds are broken.
2. There's a few kinds. Depends what you're referring to. Our dictionary has some good definitions.(top right)
3. Not entirely sure myself, so I'll let someone else answer that.
