To link and combine uncertainty principle with Neutrosophy and law of conservation of energy, it can be expanded and developed effectively and successfully in the maximum area.
Additionally, there is international agreement that this is an appropriate time for students to be introduced to one of the major unifying concepts of science, the law of conservation of energy, the First Law (1) (National Science Education Standards, 1995; Science: The Level Descriptions, 2006).
In the case of the Law of Conservation of Energy, the system was perfectly isolated, which certainly does not exist in reality.
It is not surprising that, on the basis of these experiments, he not only enunciated the law of conservation of energy, but also, on the basis of work by Helmholtz, introduced it as a principal law of physics.

In 1847, however, the German physicist Hermann Ludwig-Ferdinand von Helmholtz (1821-1894), whose credentials were impeccable, gathered the necessary data and published his conclusion that the law of conservation of energy existed.
Similarly, the Neutrosophic Probability for other laws of conservation should be determined by law of conservation of energy or experiment (currently for most cases the Neutrosophic Probability can only be determined by experiment, like the experiment of Chien-Shiung Wu et al in 1957).
The law of conservation of energy states that energy can't be created or destroyed.

Energy seemed to be disappearing unaccountably, and to save the law of conservation of energy Pauli suggested the existence of a particle that was electrically neutral, had no rest mass and interacted so feebly with other matter that it was almost undetectable.
5 The exclusion principle is not compatible with law of conservation of energy, and in physics the principles that are not compatible with law of conservation of energy will be invalid in some cases
They sometimes emerged with very little energy, in fact, and some physicists, in despair, felt that the law of conservation of energy simply didn't hold in connection with beta-particle emission.
According to the law of conservation of energy, he reminds me, energy can't be created or destroyed.
