Homework Help: Energy flow chart

  1. Feb 8, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Create an energy flow chart that has ends up transfering to a human, computer, lights (ceiling lights), and a ball. State what kind of transfer is going on and how it is transferred (verb).

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So far I have

    Sun---light energy, plant absorbs--> Plant---Chemical energy, Fossilized---> Coal

    The next one would be factory, but I do not know what kind of energy transfer or what kind of verb (processed?). I need at least 10 links that end up with human, computer, light, ball
