## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I was wondering about the following question. Does Heisenberg's Energy-Time uncertainty inequality (ΔE.Δt=>h/2) imply non-conservation of energy? I mean, if the total energy of the system fluctuates, then how can the energy be conserved? Does the COnservation of Energy so fundamental to classcial and relativistic physics break down in quantum mechanics? Thanks.
