We use second conditional to talk about hypothetical, unreal, imaginary situations.


A second conditional sentence consists of two clauses, if clause and main clause.

if + past simple + would

If I had 200 dollars, I would buy a mobile phone.



If we use"if" clause first, we usually use a comma after if clause.

If I were you, I would help that man.



If we use "if" clause second, there is no need for a comma.

I would help that man if I were you.




Examples:

If birds had wings they would be able to fly.
He would be healthier if he didn't smoke.
