The very basic meanings are covered in these two: a. Used to indicate position above and supported by or in contact with: "The vase is on the table. We rested on our hands and knees." b. Used to indicate contact with or extent over (a surface) regardless of position: "a picture on the wall; a rash on my back." ... "On" is a sort of a 'rough equivalent' word to French 'sur' or Spanish 'sobre'. Well, sort of, anyway.. :( Unfortunately, meanings for prepositions are the 'slipperiest' and most unpredictable of nearly all types of words (because their function is just to connect other words that have more meaning), and not just in English, either. And it's a little different for each language, also; so it just takes getting used to through learning and repetition. Take a look at all the different ways 'on' can be used in the examples from this on-line dictionary: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/on . There are so many!
