We use the second conditional to talk about unreal or hypothetical situations that are unlikely to happen.
The subordinate clause (If-clause) has the verb in the past simple. The main clause has the verb in the conditional form - would + infinitive
"If I studied harder, I would get better results"
"If it stopped raining, I would go for a walk"
"If we won the lottery, we would buy a new car"
"If you didn't drink so much coffee, you would sleep better."
"If I were you, I'd buy that car"
