    Default Would vs Will

    I heared people using would in their sentence. I am lil confuse about it.
    I have checked it on google. Would is used for expected things ,while will is used for sure. Please correct .
    I would ask you after 10 years.
    I will ask you after 10 years.
    I would not be able to come.
    I will not be able to come.
    Thanks.

    I would ask you after 10 years. This is an unnatural sentence.
    I will ask you after 10 years. This is an unnatural sentence.
    I would not be able to come. This is fine but you we would expect to know what circumstances would cause it not to be possible for you to come.
    I will not be able to come. This is a statement of fact.
    Thanks.
    It's a complicated topic and it's more complicated than your definitions. I have made some corrections and responses to your post in red above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
