The Science Alphabet Game

The rules are identical to those of http://www.theanimenetwork.com/component/option,com_kunena/Itemid,65/catid,7/func,view/id,39455/, except science-themed only. Biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics–all are welcome.

Additionally, if using taxonomy, please also provide the common name.

Feel free to explain the word you’re using for anyone looking to advance their knowledge.

I shall start:

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) - molecular unit of energy

Balaenoptera musculus - Blue Whale

carbon - the basic unit of all organic matter
