Energy is transferred through the separate trophic levels of a food chain or web by feeding.

5. anonymous

yes but how is it transferred through a for web

6. Koikkara

well what do you know about food webs?

7. anonymous

not much

8. Koikkara

well, for example, lets take : grass - deer - lion when the deer eats the grass, around 10% of the energy in the grass will be transferred to the deer. Same thing happens when the lion eats the deer..i.e. 10% energy is transferred from deer to lion. is it right?

9. anonymous

yes

10. Koikkara

then, the longer the food chain, the lesser energy is remained at the end of the chain Also, Food web is made up of at least 2 food chains.

11. Koikkara

Now you know how energy is transferred through a web.

12. anonymous

Explain how energy is transfered in a food web.

16. anonymous

We do not give out the direct answer. You need to figure it out yourself. @ Koikkara explained it perfectly to you. Summarize what he has said.

17. anonymous

ok but i need help summarizing it. I'm bad at that

18. anonymous

lets start with the first sentence.. it should go something like this right? Energy is transferred through the separate trophic levels of a food chain or web by feeding.

19. Koikkara

alrite, i will help then ?

20. Koikkara

When a animal in the food chain eats another lower in the food chain, the energy is transferred by heat and movement. Is it possible ?

21. Koikkara

srry...when "an animal"

22. Koikkara

@geny55 write both points together... you got a complete answer.

23. anonymous

ok so like this.. Energy is transferred through the separate trophic levels of a food chain or web by feeding. When a animal in the food chain eats another lower in the food chain, the energy is transferred by heat and movement. @Koikkara

26. Koikkara

ofcourse, why not... ? Means you didn't understand the topic...!! Doubts are welcome.

27. anonymous
