Define 10 percent law

The 10 percent law is the 10% energy transfer in the food chain which was put forth by Lindeman. The flow of energy from one trophic level to another trophic level in the food chain is explained in the pyramid of energy. According to 10 percent law, 90% of the captured energy is lost as heat in the previous level and only 10% is available for the next level.
