    Separation of powers is a political doctrine originating in the writings of Montesquieu in The Spirit of the Laws where he urged for a constitutional government with three separate branches of government. Each of the three branches would have defined abilities to check the powers of the other branches. This idea was called separation of powers. This philosophy heavily influenced the writing of the United States Constitution, according to which the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches of the United States government are kept distinct in order to prevent abuse of power. This United States form of separation of powers is associated with a system of checks and balances.

    I don't know. Trying to do some research. The only way it's really significant is like, the same thing as the definition. The importance is that so that they don't over power each other. And then checks and balances came along so they could check each other to make sure everything is in order.

    and how checks and balances encourages constant tension and conflict between the branches.
