- ‘The first law of thermodynamics is the law of conservation of energy; energy is neither created nor destroyed.’
- ‘On a side note, you don't really need total destructive interference - even partial interference will seemingly violate conservation of energy.’

- ‘This sequence of events does not violate the law of conservation of energy because energy is returned quickly enough to create an overall equilibrium.’
