Law of Conservation of Energy

Also known as the First Law of Thermodynamics, this is the principle that energy can never be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another (e.g. the chemical energy of gasoline can be converted into the energy of motion of a car).

The total amount of energy in an isolated system (or in the universe as a whole) therefore remains constant.
