  Conservation Law Enforcement
Conservation law enforcement prepares students for a comprehensive understanding of fields related to resource and environmental protection.
Building on a broad base of law enforcement knowledge, students learn the importance of integrating science into their theoretical and practical views concerning conservation of our natural resources.
Successful students are employable in agencies dedicated to enforcing public and commercial conservation laws at the federal, state and local level.

  Conservation law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Noether's theorem expresses the equivalence which exists between conservation laws and the invariance of physical laws with respect to certain transformations (typically called "symmetries") for systems which obey the Principle of least action and hence having a Lagrangian and a Hamiltonian (See Classical mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics for details).
For instance, time invariance implies that energy is conserved, translation invariance implies that momentum is conserved, and rotation invariance implies that angular momentum is conserved.
12 is a gentle introduction to symmetry, invariance, and conservation laws.

 Conservation of energy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The energy conservation law is possibly the most important, and certainly the most practically useful, of several conservation laws in physics.
This is obvious to a modern analysis based on the second law of thermodynamics but in the 18th and 19th centuries, the fate of the lost energy was still unknown.
Thus, the rule of conservation of energy was shown to be a special case of a more general rule, alternatively called the conservation of mass and energy, the conservation of mass-energy, the conservation of energy-momentum, the conservation of invariant mass or now usually just referred to as conservation of energy.

Noether's theorem expresses the fact that any conservation law is equivalent to the invariance of one or more physical laws under certain transformations (typically called "symmetries") for systems which obey the Principle of least action, and hence having a Lagrangian and a Hamiltonian (see Classical mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics for details).
Conservation of energy is possibly the most important, and certainly the most practically useful of several conservation laws in physics.
Law of conservation of energy is a mathematical consequence of continuous translational symmetry of time (no moment of time is different from any other).

 Conservation law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
conservation of magnetic flux There are more subtle conservation laws in particle physics like those of spin, baryon number and more recently strangeness.
For instance, time-invariance implies that energy is conserved, translation-invariance implies that momentum is conserved, and rotation-invariance implies that angular momentum is conserved.
In fact, quantities that are conserved, the invariants, seem to preserve what one would like to call some kind of a 'physical reality' and seem to have a more meaningful existence than many other physical quantities.

 conservation law concept from the Astronomy knowledge base
conservation of angular momentum (4 facts) - The principle that the angular momentum of a system (the momentum of rotation about a point) remains the same as long as no external torque acts., The total angular momentum of an isolated dynamical system does not change during the course of its evolution.
Modern physics has modified the law of conservation of energy, since matter can be created or annihilated; a more general law is the conservation of mass and energy.
conservation of mass and energy (3 facts) - Important physical principle and one of the basic laws of physics stating that matter is neither created nor destroyed (although mass may become energy, the energy quantitatively represents the mass).

The conservation of energy principle is one of the foundation principles of all science disciplines.

 Momentum Conservation Principle
One of the most powerful laws in physics is the law of momentum conservation.
For any collision occurring in an isolated system, momentum is conserved - the total amount of momentum of the collection of objects in the system is the same before the collision as after the collision.
A vector diagram can be used to represent this principle of momentum conservation; such a diagram uses an arrow to represent the magnitude and direction of the momentum vector for the individual objects before the collision and the combined momentum after the collision.

A law which states that, in a closed system, the total quantity of something will not increase or decrease, but remain exactly the same; that is, its rate of change is zero.
There are several other laws that deal with particle physics, such as conservation of baryon number, of strangeness, etc., which are conserved in some fundamental interactions (such as the electromagnetic interaction) but not others (such as the weak interaction).
The primary law for electrostatics, analogous to Newton's law of universal gravitation.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Law of Conservation of Energy
Thus stated, the law may be admitted to hold the position of a fundamental axiom in modern physics; the nature of the evidence for it, we shall consider later.
His statement of the law was, however, in advance of the existing experimental evidence, and he was led to it partly by philosophical reasoning, partly by consideration of physiological questions.
A law of nature must be founded on experiment and observation, and the general agreeement of the law with facts leads to a general belief in its probable truth.

 The Law of Action-Reaction (Revisited)
In the second unit of The Physics Classroom, Newton's third law of motion was introduced and discussed.
In accord with Newton's second law of motion, the acceleration of an object is dependent upon both force and mass.
According to the law, the force exerted by object 1 upon object 2 is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force exerted by object 2 upon object 1.

 Limitation of the Law of Energy Conservation
The law of conservation of energy is today an accepted doctrine that governs all energy-exchange phenomena of nature.
At that stage (1931) when the law of conservation of energy was threatened, the existence of a new particle (neutrino), till then unknown, was postulated to save the law.
However, when the spatial reality of fields and absence of energy at electron's centre are recognized, the law of conservation of energy becomes applicable only to the universe as a whole, though for the phenomena involving material interactions due to conservation of momentum, the energy conservation law will be valid also in isolated systems.

I feel that his bill is needed to prevent future conservation grantors from being dissuaded from conserving their land, and to avoid subjecting those generous individuals who already have made important grants to litigation.
