“when would” vs “when will” [closed]

I’m trying to ask a question about the future. So which form of the verb “will” should I use?

So, when will it be there?
So, when would it be there?

Answer

Just talking specifically here for their usage in the future tense:

Both are used for the future. The difference is:

Would is used when the thing discussed is only planned, and not for sure.(subjunctive)

When would the ball game be, if it is going to take place?

Will is used when the thing is already planned, and confirmed that it is going to happen.

So, what was the time when the party will begin?
