  • producer
  • 10 percent energy transfer
  • primary consumer
  • 10 percent energy transfer
  • secondary consumer
  • 10 percent energy transfer
  • tertiary consumer

  • 
  • energy can not be created nor destroyed, but can only change form
  • First law of thermodynamics
  • this means that after a consumer eats a producer or other consumer some of the energy is changed whether it is in blood spilled or used by the animal when it was alive
  • at every energy transfer some of the energy is degraded into heat that moves into a cooler object
  • second law of thermodynamics
  • this means as things in my food web get eaten some of the energy was spread to colder objects instead of into the consumer
  • 
  • after all of this energy is changed in some way, only about 10% of the energy is given to the consumer, which is why as you get higher up the food chain there aren't as many tertiary consumers. Their is not enough energy
