In a food chain, only 1% to 2 % of the total available solar energy is transferred to the producers. The rest 98% to 99% of the solar energy is reflected by the leaves and other surfaces on earth, which is then absorbed by some other materials that convert it into heat.

Thus, 1% solar energy is available to the producers in order to synthesize their food in the process called photosynthesis.

Explanation:

Plants harvest their energy from the sun during photosynthesis. This energy can then be passed from one organism to another in the food chain. The organism that obtains energy from sunlight is called the producer.

Ten percent of the energy from the sun is transferred to the producer. Each step up the chain results in a tenfold decrease in transfer; therefore, the consumer, which is the next step up the chain, would only receive ten percent of the energy from the producer, or one percent of energy from the sun.

The amount of energy passed on to the sun to a plant is only about 10%.
