dE/dT = constant.

Or, if you prefer, the simpler

E = constant.

Oops, I meant dE/dt = 0, not constant. Of course, zero is a constant....

If energy can neither be created nor destroyed - than the logical formula would be that energy before would have to equal energy after.

But you must consider potential, kinetic, friction, heat loss ect...j
