# Energy transformation Chain

## Homework Statement

When the synthesizer Iimaginary device is used on solar power, describe, in simplest terms, the chain of energy transformations required. As well describe the chain for the original synthesizer running on electric power.

## Homework Equations

I'm not to familiar with chain for solar power? But I do think I got the one for the original electric power synthesizer
