## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi folks, I am new to physics forums , an engineer by profession, I have newly developed some interest for pure physics, can someone please enlighten me on the violation of energy conservation by the time energy UP? The way I understand it the principle only puts a LOWER bound.

Is conservation of energy indeed violated for a short time, taking the example of

electron-electron interaction?

for a short time that the 'virtual' photon exists is the conservation of energy violated?

what about the conservation of momentum?
