Energy Transfer Calculation Practice 1. Calculate the amount of energy available for the following food chain, assuming 178,000 kJ per m^2 per year is contained in the primary producers (assume a 10% transfer efficiency for each level). a. Primary consumer – b. Secondary consumer – c. Tertiary consumer – d. Quaternary consumer – 2. For the above food chain, compare the biomass of the primary producers to that of the tertiary consumers. Why is there a difference? 3. For the following questions refer to the following food chain (show your work): Smelt 1250 kJ m-2 year-1 Algae 42000 kJ m-2 year-1 Human 50 kJ m-2 year-1 Small aquatic animals 6 300 kJ m-2 year-1 Trout 250 kJ m-2 year-1 Primary consumers and secondary consumers Tertiary consumers and quaternary consumers Producers and quaternary consumers Producers and secondary consumers Secondary consumers and quaternary consumers Producers and primary consumers
