# Help with understanding Conservation of Energy.

Hey, this isnt a problem or anything but im sure there are some geniuses that could help me out. Anyways, Im taking 1st year physics right now and what were doing right now is conservation of energy, it gets really tough with hard problems. If anyone could maybe help me summarize this whole conservation of energy and how to use the formulas, in what possible ways and the steps to finding the answer thatd be great. I know its alot of work but if someone could explain it to me it would be higly appreciated. Thanks

@nasib abdul as you'll see, there are several wikis that cover aspects of energy conservation, but the explanation is incomplete. If you want to ask some more specific questions, I will be sure they're addressed when I expand the entries in the coming days.

Check out the Mechanics section Conservation Laws. @josh silverman contributed several great wikis :)
