Mass effect technology is routinely used for applications that appear to violate the laws of [[thermodynamics]]. For example, it is possible to reduce an object's mass, accelerate it to high velocity, and then restore its mass without it losing any speed, effectively getting free kinetic energy. There is no explanation for this behavior, although we can presume that the power source for the mass effect generator somehow supplies the energy transferred to the projectile. Mass effect technology is known to conserve momentum, as recoil is an issue for mass effect weaponry.

It is also possible that the element zero used undergoes some kind of decay when activated, meaning it is used up over time to produce the required energy.
  
Biotics are a more blatant realism problem, as there is no explanation for how a biotic humanoid generates the energy needed for some biotic effects or applies hundreds of Newtons of force to other bodies without experiencing noticeable reaction force.

Biotics are a more blatant realism problem, as there is no explanation for how a biotic humanoid generates the energy needed for some biotic effects (there is no implication that they need to ingest eezo to sustain their abilities) or applies hundreds of Newtons of force to other bodies without experiencing noticeable reaction force.
