    • Sunlight Leaves absorb light energy from Leaves take in the sun. carbon dioxide CO2 from the air and release oxygen. O2 Cycling of chemical nutrientsLeaves fall to Water and Animals eatthe ground and minerals in leaves and fruitare decomposed the soil are from the tree.by organisms taken up bythat return the treeminerals to the throughsoil. its roots. 24
    • Sunlight Producers absorb light energy and transform it into chemical energy. Chemical energy Chemical energy in food is transferred from plants to consumers.(a) Energy flow from sunlight to producers to consumers 25
    • Heat When energy is used to do work, some energy is converted to thermal energy, which is lost as heat. An animal’s muscle cells convert chemical energy from food to kinetic energy, the energy of motion. A plant’s cells use chemical energy to do work such as growing new leaves.(b) Using energy to do work 26
