The conservation of energy

The conservation of energy   01/29/16
One of the most fundamental laws of physics is the conservation of energy. To put it simply, energy is the capacity of an object to do work. All of the energy in the universe can neither be created nor destroyed. Energy may be transferred from one object to another, and due to the second law of thermodynamics energy becomes more useless as time goes on, but it is never completely destroyed. This means that all of the energy that human civilization is using currently, weather it be electricity or or simple machines, has existed since the primordial ages of the universe.
