The abiotic components are all non living components of an ecosystem. These include sunlight, air, water, soil and climatic factors such as wind, temperature, rainfall etc.

Oxygen of the air is essential for respiration in plants and animals. Carbon dioxide is useful for photosynthesis in plants.
Water is used by plants and animals for drinking and various other purposes.
