  • Eze Nnedinso Patience Nigeria The flow of energy and Cycling of Matter is usually traceable to the activities of Eco-systems. This emanates from the activities or roles of all the organisms within the Eco-systems. The roles of organisms in an Eco-system is called Niche. Energy Source and Sinks which to my understanding deals with the means, points or areas through which current enters or exist (leaves) a system. Energy flows from a source to a sink using heat energy for an example; heat energy flows from hottest point (where it comes from which can be called the source) to the coldest point ( to where it goes which can also be called the sink).

  • Sophal Sreng Cambodia There are many sorces of energy, which at the present time. The energy sources that is environmetally friendly are from wind, solar, water thermal etc. However, they cost too much of money. So, from my idea, incinerator that uses petrol still necessary.

  • Doly Alejandra Jiménez Trujillo Colombia La Energía es Una fuente Importante para el Desarrollo de Procesos MUCHOS no solo en la tierra si no En otros lugares del planeta, Energía Como la solar permiten La Evolución de Los seres vivos en la tierra Y Por ende contribuye a su sostenibilidad y sustentabilidad. Por Otro Lado Podemos Encontrar Otros Tipos de Energía Que Son MANIPULADOS POR EL hombre pára suplir ALGUNAS de las Necesidades Básicas del hombre Y Por ende Fomentar Una mejor Calidad de Vida.

  • Cristina Arcillas Philippines Greatest energy is solar, it moves other energy like wind, water and ocean currents. It is also the most crucial as the sunlight is used for photosynthesis for food plant which humans and animals use for sustenance. Man also uses other energies found in the earth like fossil fuels and minerals like uranium
