How the energy in waves originally came from the Sun?
The energy from waves is usually caused by the wind; the wind is caused by temperature differences among different parts of Earth; and these temperature differences are caused by the sunlight.
How is the ultimate source of energy for heterotrophs the sun even though they cannot make their own food?
Explain why most of the electromagnetic waves emitted by the sun that strike earths surface are infrared and visible light waves?

It depends which wave you're talking about. There are many different ones, and the energy they carry has different origins. -- The energy in ocean waves and sunny-day light waves and heat waves originates in the sun. -- The energy in the sound wave emitted by a violin string originates in the arm muscle of he or she who draws the bow. (Actually in the food she ate the night before the concert, which ultimately…
It is not directly a form of "solar energy", but it contains energy which originally came from the sun. Oil is a type of fossil fuel, which are formed by natural decomposition of plants and organisms over millions of years. Plants have originally used solar energy to grow - for sugar production from photosynthesis.
Heterotrophs depend on the sun for energy because they eat other hetertophs and autotrophs. As you know autotrophs eat plants sp when a heterotroph eats one, it gets the energy. Or it receives it directly by eating the plants/autotrphs. I hope this answered your question. -Skylar =P OR~ The ultimate source is where the energy came from originally. Heterotrophs get their energy from autotrophs, which get their energy from the sun. So, that means the…
fossil fuels I assume you are talking about fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas). You can call these buried sunshine since the energy in fossil fuels comes from decaying plants and microorganisms. Those plants and microorganisms got their energy originally from the sun. So all the energy in fossil fuels originally came from the sun.
Waves are energy. Waves is just a word, to describe the transformation of energy through the surroundings. Where you refer to our Sun, our Sun is just a Hydrogen Star, based upon nuclear fusion making it alive. With E=mc² The Energy is produced is a product of mass being transformed to Energy, while this energy is dispersed through the surroundings, deriving the concept of light waves (Energy Flow). We could not answer your question, because…
