  1. In the First box write the source of energy.
  2. Write Energy wasted, if available, against the yellow arrow in the box. In front of arrow mention reason of loss.
  3. Write the energy to which first box energy gets converted to.

Proceed with each step.
The energy can be Potential energy, Kinetic energy, Electrical Energy.
The losses can be attributed to evaporation, heat, friction, conversion efficiency, transmission

The figure shown is a three step energy conversion daigram. It could be of more than or less than four steps.
