How is solar energy being used by plants animals and human?
Plants use energy from the sun together with nutrients from the ground, water, and some gasses from the atmosphere to grow. Then animals can eat the plants, and humans can eat both animals and plants. So pretty much all energy being used on Earth, apart from nuclear energy and thermal energy once came from the sun, one way or another. Answer the energy of the sun is used by people to other energy in the earth thats why the sun is called the main energy source of the earth then it helps provide vitamin D for the plants, it helps them to make sugar and carbon dioxide it helps them maketheir own food .for the animals , it helps them heat the body especially mamals that has thick fur.

What is the 1st benefit? What is the context? One benefit is that solar energy feeds all life starting with plants. The sun's photons are captured by plants to combine air (ca…rbon dioxide) and water to make more plant carbon mass as the plant grows. Animals eat this.
It's useful to us because we can't naturally produce vitamin D without sunlight (other apes can, so something happened in our evolution.) Some animals such as fish, amphibia…ns and reptiles depend on heat coming from the sun to help regulate their body temperature. Sunlight schedule also can regulate sleep and waking patterns. Sunlight benefits animals indirectly because it's what plants use to make their food, which then are eaten and that energy is transferred up the food chain. Some plants might depend on wind for seed dispersal, and sunlight helps with that.
Plants use solar energy through the process of photosynthesis. In this process they absorb sunlight, water from the ground, and carbon dioxide from the air to create oxygen as… a waste product and glucose as their source of food. Plants use the sun's energy to perform electrolysis and break down water into hydrogen and oxygen. They then combine the hydrogen with carbon dioxide to make C6H12O6, or glucose. The equation is CO2 + H2O -> sun and chlorophyll -> C6H12O6
Animals use solar energy by: Eating vegetation that has used solar energy to grow (photosynthesis)Eating other animals that have eaten vegetation.Using the sun's warmth to sur…vive. This is especially true of cold-blooded animals like reptiles. animals use energy from the sun for their life.
There are two types of solar energy plants: 1. Plants that use sun's rays directly to heat a medium (sometimes a hybrid plant with natural gas). See Wikipedia entry 'List of… Solar Thermal Power Stations' 2. Plants that use photovoltaic cells to produce electricity. See Wikipedia entry 'Photovoltaic Power Stations' Both these articles list plants in various countries including the US
Humans use solar energy to charge batteries to heat homes,pools, and even to create electricity. Solar energy is also used tocharge electronic appliances, grow algae for feedi…ng fish, and heatentire buildings. . +++ True, but you've missed something rather closer to home. We asliving organisms need the Sun's light and heat directly for ourphysiology, and indirectly from needing to eat - our food plantsand animals similarly need solar radiation to exist and thrive!
because the forests is the natural resources of our country and it protect the human being
They eat the plants that absorbed solar energy too . They warming their bodies in sun.

(It's not solar power,it's photosynthesis)Their leaves absorb light and turn it into food.
To my knowledge, the first known intelligent and deliberate use of solar energy by humans dates back approximately 60,000 years. This is the estimated age of a house built by …paleolithic humans in what is now Eastern Europe, using what is now called passive solar architecture. This small structure, cleverly made of interlocking mammoth tusks, featured a single large opening facing due south; the opening is thought to have been designed to use sunlight to warm the abode. The structure was reconstructed and exhibited at the Museum of Natural History in New York City. Some folks date the first use of solar energy to the use of "burning mirrors" - concentrating solar reflectors - by the Greeks and Romans ca. 100 A.D., as weapons of war to ignite fires and burn sails of enemy war ships. Photovoltaic (PV) energy - the conversion of sunlight to electricity - dates to 1839 when the property was discovered accidentally by the French experimental physicist Edmund Becquerel, while he was experimenting with an electrolytic cell. The phenomenon was first explained in 1904 by Albert Einstein in his first published scientific paper. He explained the photovoltaic effect by inventing Quantum Theory, and it was for this that he won the Nobel Prize in 1921! Usable PV cells were first made in the early 1950's.
so they can take the vitamin d which is most important for his body
In Animal Life
Animals eat plants (of eat the animals that do). Animals can't make their own food from energy and simple compounds, and even if they could, animal energy use is too prodigiou…s to support by photosynthesis of the organism itself. A 70 Kg human needs around 2,000 - 3,000 kilocalories a day; to make that requires several hundred Kg or plants and many days. It requires a field of really good grass the size of a rugby pitch to keep one cow alive. Short answer: plants are vital; if they die, we die.
