Quand est-ce qu'on utilise "dans" et quand est-ce qu'on utilise "en"?
En anglais, c'est le meme chose.
Here's something that may interest you: French prepositions en vs. dans
Basically, dans always = in. It is really used to locate in
something/somewhere, or in a figurative location as in expressions like "i'm in big shit", in some others expressions like "in life" = "dans la vie", or before time when you indicate the time before
something occurs like in "in ___ (from now)", "in two hours" (not like "en" which is just simply used to indicate the time when something happened/will happen in the past or the future when used before time...there's a little nuance there...) etc...
But everything is better explained there: French preposition "dans"
