“The energy flow in the ecosystem follows the second law of thermodynamics.” Explain.rn
Second law of Thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another form.
• Energy flows in the ecosystem through external environment to the series of organisms back again to the external environment.
• During this process 90% of the energy is utilised by the each trophic level and only 10% energy is passed to next trophic level,
• The utilised energy later on transforms into heat.
