Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure i think it is the law of conservation of energy which say (energy neither be created nor destroyed but it changes from A form to Another )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If energy is conserved throughout a system then the total energy of the system does not change unless energy is transferred into or out of the system.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Everything said so far is correct. It also means the system has no net work done on it and the system itself also does no net work. As a theoretical and pragmatic matter in Physics, the conservation of energy is key to many problems.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it correct to say, mass to energy conversion is actually a violation of conservation of energy principle as you see energy is CREATED from mass or it still holds good because.. mass is actually a FORM of energy and its basically transformed?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So first year you learn Physics in High School, you learn about the Conservation of Energy. Second year, you learn about a more expansive version: Conservation of MassEnergy. Even so, in many classical problems in Physics, Conservation of Energy is what you need and use.
