Answer:
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.
 
So if energy is available to producers = 10,000 J
 
Energy available to herbivores = 10,000 x 10/100 = 1000 J
Energy available to lower carnivores = 1000 x 10/100 = 100 J
Energy available to higher carnivores = 100 x 10/100 = 10 J
