Wheat plants represent the producer level. They trap only 1% of the suns energy falling on them. So, the energy available in wheat will be 1% of 1,000 J which will be 10 J.
According to 10% law, at each trophic level about 10% of the energy of the previous trophic level is passed to the next trophic level.
Energy available to mice = 10 x 10/100 = 1 J
Energy available to snake = 1 x 10/100 = 0.1 J
Energy available to higher carnivores = 0.1 x 10/100 = 0.01 J
